Our Service Philosophy

TMC has defined for itself the value proposition: “Where Patients are Partners.” This phrase finds its fullest meaning when the patient is viewed not as a problem to be solved or a charge to be cared for, but as a partner in his own health. Patient partnership means acknowledging the patient's fundamental accountability for his own health, then supporting this with systems, tools and venues for education, open communication, and informed choice. This fresh perspective on the patient's role in health care represents a radical departure from the traditional idea of the patient as a passive recipient of medical services.
