Matthews-Vu Medical Group was established in 2004 with 2.5 physicians and a small office near the old Penrose Community Hospital. We are now 60 providers strong practicing in five locations with physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychiatrists and behavioral health professionals. The care team is supported by population health and clinical support services that collaborate to provide the comprehensive, collaborative care we hold as the signature of our practice.

At Matthews-Vu, we are committed to going the extra mile to deliver exceptional care to our patients and their families. Our clinicians and staff are well-trained, qualified and compassionate. We cultivate an environment that is friendly, helpful and respectful. When a patient steps through our door, we know their names and they are confident that they are in the right place to get their health needs met. We are inspired and privileged by the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. We treasure the stories our patients share and enjoy their hugs, share their tears, and celebrate their joys, truly valuing the relationship we have with each and every one.
