Thomas J. Ferkovic, R.Ph., MS
In 1999, Tom and Wealth Management firm SS&G entered into a joint venture to form Medic Management Group, LLC – formerly known as SS&G Healthcare – inheriting a few staff members and a small client base via a merger to get the company started. While the focus at the time was outsourced practice management services for small to mid-sized physician groups, Tom saw additional opportunities on the horizon.
Today, Tom has helped grow Medic Management Group to serve over 2,000 physicians in their client practices across 26 states. The company now has more than 100 employees who provide a variety of services, including outsourced physician practice management, compliance plan development, strategic planning, physician compensation consulting, contract negotiations, accounts receivable management, and practice valuation.
Originally a pharmacist and health care management professional by training, Tom was President of the practice management firm Telesis of Ohio prior to starting MMG. There, he opened and grew the company to 123 employees and 185 primary care physicians. Prior to Telesis, he served as the vice president of St. Luke’s Medical Center in Cleveland, where he was responsible for strategic planning, managed care contracting, and physician relations, which led to the start of St. Luke’s Integrated Medical System (PHO) and Outreach Professional Systems — the first hospital-owned, non-staff primary care group practice in Cleveland.
Tom earned his master’s degree in information science from Case Western Reserve University and a Bachelor of Science in pharmacy from the University of Toledo.
