SIMED has joined the Institutional Partners Council of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R). According to the AAPM&R, “This has been developed as a way to formalize engagement between institutions and AAPM&R so that together we can help transform the focus of health care.” In other words, AAPM&R has recognized the importance of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation providers in the community and at prominent facilities in helping to shape the future direction for this specialty.
Oscar DePaz, MD, SIMED Chairman of the Board and a practicing Rehabilitation Medicine physiatrist, is proud that SIMED is the first physician-owned practice to join the Council. “When you get recognized by the AAPM&R along with NYU and the University of Louisville, you know you’re supporting the specialty. And that benefits our physicians, patients and community”.
