Tigard resident Tony McCormick sees a need for better health care in Portland. And he has a plan.
McCormick, a medical software writer by day, has founded Patient/Physician Cooperative — Portland, a health care co-op that brings physicians and patients together in a way that makes it easier for everyone involved, McCormick said.
“We have successful health care co-ops in Houston and North Carolina, but here in Portland we have a much better understanding of co-ops and I thought, ‘Well, this is silly. We should start one here, too.”
The group is hosting its first meeting in Tigard next week.
