As with other SMG practices, Barry Pointe will benefit from the purchasing power and increased efficiencies of a group with more than 1,000 employees.

Our goal is to continue to work to utilize evidence based care to improve health outcomes for our patients, allow better access to care and improve patient satisfaction in health care.”
Jan Vest, CEO, SMG, notes, “The addition of Barry Pointe Family Care to Signature Medical Group is yet another example of our efforts to preserve and advance the independent practices of medicine for the betterment of patients and communities we serve. Barry Pointe Family Care will add to our presence in the Kansas City area, complimenting to our current and future groups of independent physicians.”
