Why join SGPA?

An Independent Physician Association Dedicated to Quality and Value in Health Care

SGPA is an organization of over 300 physicians that was organized in 1997 to provide medical and surgical care to citizens of South Georgia. SGPA member physicians must meet quality care criteria established by their peers. SGPA uses a Credentials Verification Organization certified by the National Committee Quality Insurance (NCQA), and the SGPA membership comes from all major specialties and sub-specialties.

  • The well being of our patients in our community is our primary concern. We will not support any health insurance plan that place other concerns above our patients’ needs.

  • Quality is the single most important consideration in health care. Without acceptable quality, health care service has no value.

  • The cost-effectiveness of health services is crucial to the prosperity of our community. Cost must be considered in all prevention and treatment decisions.

  • Our patients’ health and safety depend on our freedom to act in their best interest and to be their advocate. We actively support the right of physicians to remain independent from a third party that would in any way compromise a patient needing health care.
