BRENTWOOD, TN (August 15, 2017)
QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through affiliations and de novo development, today announced Cumberland Skin Surgery and Dermatology has joined the company as an affiliate practice.
Cumberland Skin Surgery and Dermatology, with offices in both Hermitage and Lebanon, Tennessee, provides comprehensive general dermatology and skin cancer care as well as medical aesthetic services. The practice was founded by Julie Countess, M.D. and Joey Price, M.D. Both physicians are Board-certified dermatologists and Mohs surgeons. The practice has 7 additional clinical staff members, including a general dermatologist, 3 certified physician assistants, and 3 certified nurse practitioners.
“We chose to affiliate with QualDerm because of their dedication to patient-centric quality care,” says Julie Countess, M.D. “Being part of a larger, quality-driven organization will help us expand services and better position our practice to navigate changes within the healthcare industry.”
Cumberland Skin Surgery and Dermatology is the first Tennessee-based dermatology practice to affiliate with QualDerm. Under this partnership agreement, QualDerm will provide the management support, guidance, and capital to expand the practice’s services and geographical reach. QualDerm recently expanded into the Ohio market and has 12 affiliated practices in North Carolina and Virginia. The company has plans to partner with dermatology practices in other regions by year end.
