At DarSalud, our mission is to improve the standard of care for patients by providing integrated, outcome oriented, and culturally-competent treatment interventions. In doing so, we aim to positively impact clinical outcomes, resource utilization, service provision costs, clinical training standards, and applications of research.
We have developed a unique and cost-efficient health model that utilizes preventive medicine to improve patient wellness and long-term health through an interdisciplinary approach to the prevention and management of diabetes, obesity and other cardio-metabolic conditions.
We strive to establish a healthcare network in Memphis and the surrounding Mid-South that employs quality-driven reference models, breaks preventive care and disease management paradigms and establishes itself as the practice, partner and employer of choice in the community.
