The Mission of MD2U is to offer quality primary healthcare to the homebound and home limited and provide the most convenient, detailed and service-oriented medical care, thereby improving and revolutionizing the healthcare delivery system throughout communities nationwide.
MD2U is committed to quality in-home medical care in a supportive, team-oriented environment. We value intimate patient relationships centered on honesty, integrity, freedom of choice and human dignity.
MD2U was founded in 2004 by Dr. J. Michael Benfield with the goal of providing the highest quality primary care to patients who were home bound or home limited. The practice has grown quickly as MD2U has provided a much needed service for the elderly and for chronically ill patients.
The MD2U model includes a team approach to health care by employing physicians, physicians’ assistants, and nurse practitioners. This team works closely with the patient and their family to provide the most efficient, comprehensive, and holistic approach to their care.
MD2U now has over 160 employees including dozens of providers and patient care coordinators. MD2U’s house calls have doubled every year since its inception and the company made over 70,000 house calls in 2012. In addition to providing excellent health care, MD2U has helped eliminate unnecessary emergency and hospital visits. This reduction reduces health care costs and keeps patients in the comfort of their own homes. “The MD2U Impact”, Dr. Benfield stated, “is the primary reason that we do what we do. We recognize that there is a great need for this type of healthcare in the future and want to provide the best possible care for our patients and their family members. By working closely with our patients, families, other healthcare providers, and insurance providers we can have a significant impact on our patient’s lives. Through our efforts we can help patients live independently longer and help reduce the rising cost of healthcare in America.
