Midland is a healthcare destination within the region
It is a place where families receive preventative care, women come to give birth, cancer patients go for treatment, and patients receive comprehensive care and the treatment of their diseases. Whether in need of a transplant, heart surgery, medical image, prenatal care or physical therapy - patients can have all their medical needs met in Midland.
Bringing quality primary care to all people of Midland is one more step in Midland Health’s Healing Mission to make Midland the healthiest community in Texas. Primary care includes generalists, internal medicine, and pediatricians. It can also include medical doctors, physician’s assistants, and nurse practitioners.
They accept most commercial insurance, including Medicare, traditional Medicaid, and Medicaid HMOs that include FirstCare, Superior, Amerigroup, and Medicare Advantage.
The Lifestyle Medicine Center at Midland Health
Midland Health believes that one cannot be truly healthy without considering the mind, body, and spirit. Because of this, they created the Lifestyle Medicine Center—a resource for the community to provide physical, mental, and spiritual education so that people can experience the best life possible. The Lifestyle Medicine Center is one of the only programs in the United States to offer a variety of comprehensive lifestyle intervention programs at one location.
Two of the programs offered are the Ornish Lifestyle Medicine™ program for Reversing Heart Disease® and the Lifestyle Medicine Clinic with Dr. Padmaja Patel. Dr. Ornish’s Program has been proven to undo heart disease by dealing with the root causes through lifestyle changes, and is based on more than three decades of research. Dr. Padmaja Patel’s program is a medically-supervised, comprehensive lifestyle program—a unique clinic where lifestyle interventions will be offered as the first line of treatment while using medications only on an as-needed basis. Some of the other programs offered are Cardiac Rehab, BetterU, Nutrition Education, and Diabetes Education: Self-Management Training.
Providing holistic health resources for the community is one more example of how Midland Health is helping to make Midland the healthiest community in Texas.
