Montage Medical Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of Montage Health, which also owns Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP), Community Health Innovations (an accountable care services organization), and Aspire Health Plan.
Montage Medical Group was launched under the name of Peninsula Primary Care as a non-profit public service physician group in 2009 focused on addressing the shortage of primary care physicians on the Monterey Peninsula. In 2016 Peninsula Primary Care changed its name to Montage Medical Group (MMG) which is now a multi-specialty group representing 13 board-recognized specialties. MMG serves Monterey County through five locations in the cities of Monterey, Carmel, and Marina.
In 2015, MMG’s primary care practices received national recognition as Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Homes (the highest level of achievement) from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
MMG is governed by a nine-member voluntary Board of Directors consisting of community members and physicians. The Board of Directors and Leadership Cabinet have articulated the organizational guiding principles that light our way each day in the form of our vision, mission and organizational culture.
Vision: We engage patients to achieve optimal health at every stage of their life.
Mission: We produce two products – care and caring. In partnership with the patients we serve, we provide timely access to highly reliable, evidence-based, safe, medically necessary, and affordable care to all who come through our doors. We are trusted in our community for our empathy and compassion. We are a force in the medical community in driving innovative approaches to care delivery.
Culture: We believe the primary motivators for healthcare workers are a deeply held yearning to make a difference, to find meaning in all life experiences – good and bad – an innate human need to be engaged with honorable and talented people doing important work so that, in the end, they could say, “I made a difference in people’s lives.” We foster the ongoing employment and development of employees who share our guiding philosophy, are engaged in their workplace, and are accountable for their choices and outcomes.
Physician leadership is embedded in the organization, from the Chief Executive Officer of Montage Health to the Chief Medical and Operating Officer of MMG, and other physician leaders engaged in directing clinical change through our interdisciplinary Leadership Cabinet. We strive to continuously advance the quality of our clinical services and our patients’ experiences.
