20 | ADVENTIST HEALTH PARTNERS
WHAT IT DOES: Adventist Health Partners is a physician group with 50 locations in Chicago’s western suburbs. HOW IT GREW:
Adventist has adopted the patient-centered medical home model of care so that its group of physicians can provide a personalized approach to each patient. This model has driven patients to the company’s more-than 180 doctors, and the patients seem quite content with their experience. Adventist’s physicians are in the 90th percentile of the patient-satisfaction rankings from Press Ganey Associates. According to spokeswoman Patricia Reynaert, high patient satisfaction and a collection of great physicians has driven Adventist’s 218% revenue growth in the past five years.
And Adventist is showing no signs of slowing; it has added 35 primary-care physicians and 35 subspecialty physicians already this year. It’s also currently negotiating with more than two dozen community-based independent practices looking to join the organization.
