What is a "medical center" or "hospital affiliation"?

When you select a PCP, you become part of that PCP's medical center/hospital affiliation/PO/PHO. A medical center is made up of many physicians (PCPs and specialists) who are under one roof and create a one-stop shop for services. A hospital affiliation describes providers grouped together to serve you. These providers work in private offices and may also include a hospital that is linked. Both terms refer to the team of physicians that you will seek all care from, routine and specialty.
