Twenty years ago, when it looked as though the days of seeing a doctor in private practice would become a thing of the past, XiMED created a unique business structure that allowed physicians to hold onto the ideals that brought them to medicine in the first place. XiMED was established to preserve the private practice, and to provide the best medical care available to patients, when they need it the most.
As XiMED moves forward with quality driven ideals, what is important is our principles and beliefs. XiMED continues to stand for “Excellence in Medicine.” But what really sets us apart is the belief that the doctor-patient relationship is at the core of quality healthcare. Quality care can only come when it is personalized and focused on the individual – Exceptional Doctors. Individual Care.
XiMED Medical Group started in 1979 by independent physicians at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. Today, over 400 XiMED physicians share a common commitment to provide quality, personalized health care to all patients, as well as providing patients a choice of physicians in a variety of specialized fields of medicine. The doctor-patient relationship is the primary focus of XiMED’s health care mission. We believe this is what truly sets us apart, and this philosophy is at the center of what XiMED stands for today.
