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.

The company's first contract outside of FL involved a hospital in Charleston, WV, in 1991. One of our founding partners, Dr. Stefan Maxwell, continues to practice neonatology in our Charleston group today as well as educate legislators on Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) together with our Government Relations team. Dr. Maxwell is pictured here testifying in Washington, D.C. in 2015, which resulted in the House passing the H.R. 1462: Protecting Our Infants Act of 2015 bill.

“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.”
