In your view, why is team-focused health care important?
A team-focused approach to health-care is crucial in medicine today. The use of mid-level providers increases with each passing year.

At Jackson Pulmonary, the office staff, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians all work together as a team. Each person is a vital and valued piece of the puzzle.
