Mission and Actions

The Monroe Owen County Medical Society is dedicated to the provision of quality health care in our community.

To achieve this goal, we support physicians and their families by:

  • Enhancing the health of our community through community health education activities (See Sponsorships and Community Health Initiatives)
  • Providing a referral service for community members needing to find a family physician or a medical specialist
  • Providing a grievance process to help physicians resolve conflict with their patients
  • Communicating with member physicians by means of a regular newsletter to keep them apprised of medical issues facing our community, state and nation
  • Conducting regular meetings of the executive committee and general membership to provide information about the activities of MOCMS and timely healthcare topics while offering a supportive environment for member physicians and their families
  • Providing focused physician forums, as needed, when important health care issues arise in our community
  • Maintaining and staffing a business office
  • Appointing members to the joint Physician Assistance Committee
  • Representing the local physician community to the Indiana State Medical Association
