QualDerm Partners Expands Its Network of Dermatology Practices in Tennessee

Lebanon Dermatology Joins QualDerm’s Growing Network of Patient-Centric Practices

BRENTWOOD, TN (May 22, 2018)

QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through affiliations and de novo development, today announced Lebanon Dermatology has joined the company as an affiliate practice. This affiliation marks QualDerm’s nineteenth partnership with physician-owned practices.

Founded by Charles A. Mitchell, MD, Lebanon Dermatology provides comprehensive medical and cosmetic dermatologic care, including skin cancer prevention and detection. The practice has served patients in the middle Tennessee region for forty years.

“My practice has been built on providing the highest quality of care. Generations of patients have trusted me to do that, so it was important to me to align with a company that shares the same values,” says Dr. Mitchell. “QualDerm-affiliated dermatologists are among the best in our field and the company’s reputation for quality is second to none.”

QualDerm’s partnership model focuses on physician leadership to help guide the company’s policies and growth. Joint Operating Committees, whose members consist of an equal number of physicians and business professionals, oversee each of the company’s regional markets. QualDerm also has a physician-led Quality Council to help advance the clinical excellence for the company’s affiliated practices and is responsible for advising QualDerm leadership of leading-edge clinical practices and strategies to be considered for adoption.

“We’re honored that Lebanon Dermatology has joined our network of affiliated practices,” says Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm. “This practice is a staple in its community and is known throughout the region for providing great care. Dr. Mitchell’s experience and expertise is a valuable addition to the QualDerm network.”

Under the partnership agreement, QualDerm will provide Lebanon Dermatology with management support, guidance and capital to expand their services. QualDerm affiliated practices are located in Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Ohio. The company has plans to expand into other regions by year end.
