About Us

Independence Physician Management (IPM)

IPM was formed in June 2012 to be a separate and distinct physician management unit of UHS. IPM is dedicated to the support and service of the acute care facilities and provides only incidental services to behavioral health. We are the comprehensive arm of UHS providing services to both employed and independent physicians in our markets.

The legal entity is a wholly owned subsidiary of UHS and all management decisions and contracts are held directly with IPM and its subsidiaries. The acute care facilities do not have management oversight or contracting authority due to the separation of legal entities and the liability protection it provides. We have further developed the legal structure by creating entities in each of the states we do business in. This separation creates a focused division with expertise in the areas of practice management and development, strategic planning, on-boarding of new physicians and support services dedicated to the operational excellence of our employed practices.
