Transforming health care since 1979

Since 1979, MEDNAX has evolved with the health care industry while giving our clinicians the tools and support they need to focus on patients - not paperwork. As we celebrate 40 years of success, we'd like to thank our partners in progress: our health care providers, administrative support staff, clinical peers, hospital partners and patients across the country. Now more than ever, health care is a collaborative effort.

Together, we will continue to take great
care of the patient, every day and in
every way.

Did you know? Our 100,000 Babies Campaign, a continuous quality improvement initiative, surpassed the 100,000 babies mark halfway through what was intended to be a three-year project. The campaign utilized data garnered by BabySteps®, our proprietary electronic health record, which recently evolved into a newly enhanced web-based application. Today, "100,000 Babies" is representative of our ongoing efforts to improve neonatal outcomes.

"Celebrating 40 years means the company has a solid foundation. Many other medical companies have withered and died during the last 40 years. It takes a solid company to survive in a competitive market."

Transforming health care since 1979

We began as a single neonatology group in 1979. By meeting the changing needs of our patients, physicians and hospitals, we have grown to become a national provider of health solutions.

"This anniversary shows the longevity of the company and its ability to grow with the needs of the health care system. Deliberate and sustainability are two words that come to mind. We change and grow to stay successful. We have tradition and commitment, but we are not stuck to one model. We continue to do what's right for our patients and partners. It allows me [as a physician] to focus on what matters for my patients."
