USMD

About us

USMD is a physician-led, integrated health system committed to exemplary patient care. We serve the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area with more than 250 physicians and associate practitioners. We provide health care services to patients in more than 20 different specialties at our two hospitals, four cancer treatment centers and nearly 50 physician clinics, many of which are multi-specialty. USMD joined OptumCare in 2016.

What sets us apart

In today’s health care climate, too often the focus has been on reactive care and patient volume rather than quality. USMD Health System’s integrated health care model brings primary care providers and specialists together and places them in their proper role as leaders of health care delivery. We focus on evidence-based medicine and the best possible clinical outcomes. This important shift brings quality and patient satisfaction to the forefront. 

All of USMD’s primary care clinics received NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Level 3 recognition. They successfully display and utilize evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term patient relationships. 70 of USMD’s clinics, comprising 261 providers, received the 2014 Texas Physician Practice Quality Improvement Award, sponsored by the Texas Medical Foundation in partnership with the Texas Medical Associate and Texas Osteopathic Medical Association.

OptumCare, believes that putting the physician at the center of care is the best way to improve lives. Being part of something bigger allows us to do just that. Optum is the fastest growing part of UnitedHealth Group, providing care givers with the technology and support to help focus on patient outcomes rather than administrative duties. Our deep analytical capabilities and health information system technology enables better decision-making at every point along the care continuum. The end result will be a health care system that’s more responsive, innovative and effective. It’s that kind of radical thinking that will make the biggest impact.
