Donor Spotlight on Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group

Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group

This month’s donor spotlight is on Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group featuring Medical Director and Chief Medical Officer Steven A. Green, M.D. Founded in 1923, Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group is one of the largest, most comprehensive medical groups in San Diego County, with more than 500 physicians and 2,800 staff members who represent virtually every field of medicine. Dedicated to the highest quality patient care, Sharp Rees-Stealy has been a steadfast participant in AMGA Foundation programs. As a member of the AMGA Board of Directors and the Cabinet for the Campaign for a Healthier America, Dr. Green has championed Sharp Rees-Stealy’s participation in AMGA Foundation’s goal to drive positive health outcomes for 100 million patients by 2025.

AMGA Foundation: Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group has always been a leader in delivering high-quality, patient-centered care.  How do you think the Campaign for a Healthier America will assist in fulfilling your mission?

Green: The work of the AMGA Foundation is important, as it truly helps us to improve the care of patients nationwide. The fact that the Foundation acknowledges medical groups for outstanding performance with awards such as its annual Acclaim Award, helps us showcase the important work we are doing in improving the health of our patients. Receiving such recognition helps groups like ours demonstrate the value we are providing to our communities.

AMGA Foundation: You participated in our first national campaign, Measure Up/Pressure Down® and now are active in Together 2 Goal®.  How have these national campaigns informed the care Sharp Rees-Stealy is providing?

Green: Moving into this level of hands-on population management was a big step for our physicians.  Participating in a national campaign helped clarify the importance of what we were doing. It also helped to have benchmark data, as no physician wants to be outdone when it comes to providing great care to their patients.

AMGA Foundation: What is your personal connection to the Campaign’s goal to improve care for 100 million patients?

Green: I serve on the Cabinet for the Campaign for a Healthier America, helping to communicate the vision of what the Foundation can do for medical groups and systems. Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group is proud to support and work with the Foundation to improve the health of San Diegans, as well as all Americans.

AMGA Foundation: Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group has historically been a generous supporter of AMGA Foundation. Why would you encourage other medical organizations to support our Campaign for a Healthier America?

Green: The Campaign for a Healthier America is important not only for improving the health of millions of Americans, but for showcasing what high-functioning health systems are capable of achieving. What better way to convince policymakers of the benefit of what AMGA member groups are capable of, than to show with objective numbers the better health outcomes we are able to achieve together for our patients.
