Southern Plains Medical Center was first established in Chickasha, Oklahoma in 1915 and hosts more than 18 medical specialties and over 30 medical providers!
Founded in 2012, Physician Housecalls meets the unique and specific needs of homebound patients. These patients typically have two or more chronic diseases, making it difficult for them to leave their home for primary care services. With a focus on the geriatric population, Physician Housecalls provides home-based primary care services within the patient’s place of residence.
Physician Housecalls employs physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants with primary care experience. Preference is given to health care providers who are board certified in internal medicine or family practice. We currently serve patients throughout Oklahoma, with plans to expand into other markets in the near future.
The company was founded by CEO Hank Ross, who also started a successful home health and hospice agency, Ross Health Care.
