John Muir Health

John Muir Health is a not-for-profit integrated system of doctors, hospitals, and other services, not an insurance company or health plan. Physicians providing care to our HMO members are part of the John Muir Physician Network.

John Muir Physician Network

The John Muir Physician Network is a not-for-profit medical foundation. The 800 or so physicians associated with the John Muir Physician Network belong to either the John Muir Medical Group or the Muir Medical Group Independent Physician Association (IPA). These physicians accept all HMO and most PPO insurance plans, as well as Medicare.

The John Muir Physician Network owns and operates close to 100 physician practices staffed by the John Muir Medical Group in 20 locations from Brentwood to San Ramon. The Muir Medical Group IPA is a panel of primary care physicians and specialists with offices throughout Contra Costa and parts of southern Solano and southern Alameda counties.
