The Olympia Mission
To improve the health and well-being of our community by helping physicians meet the challenges of delivering high quality and cost-efficient care in an ever-evolving healthcare landscape.
Originally founded as two separate organizations in the 1980's, Botsford Medical Group and Garden City Professional Staff PC merged to form Olympia Medical Services to more effectively position our physicians to be successful in the new managed care arena. Olympia's mission has broadened and evolved as we have continued to build the framework of an organization that will continue to be successful and relevant despite the threats of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
Olympia physicians are providers of primary and specialty care dedicated to delivering outstanding medical services with compassion and providing excellence in care at every stage of life. In today's medical landscape, however, this has become an increasingly difficult challenge. With strained resources and fragmented care across multiple providers and settings, providers have less control over patient outcomes. Olympia provides the support services necessary to help physicians focus on patients by reducing the administrative burdens of increasing government regulations.
And although our physicians remain independent, Olympia serves as the unifying entity for negotiating and administering fair and competitive contracts with major insurers. As advocates for our physician members, we work to establish mutually beneficial relationships with our managed care partners and other healthcare organizations in our community in a proactive approach to quality improvement that gives physicians the opportunity to help define performance standards, develop tools, grow their practices, and deliver better care.
