About Us

TIPS was founded in 2007 by Dr. Mark Murray with the vision of providing quality hospitalist care for patients in a physician friendly environment. His goal was to build a team of physicians that would provide continuity and longevity in the hospitals that we serve and the community in general. This superior model results in a cohesive relationship with not only the patient but also the hospital administration and hospital medical staff. This model is one reason we have enjoyed phenomenal growth since 2007.

Physician owned and operated, we understand the challenges and opportunities inherent in managing a busy hospital practice. High quality patient care is our top priority, handled in a productive, compassionate and cost-effective manner. We strive to create an environment that leaves a lasting positive impression on our patients.
