“El Rio works to improve the quality of care continuously. I like that. We don’t just do an okay job because people just deserve okay care. Our patients deserve excellence in their care, and we give it to them. El Rio is a phenomenal model of care that isn’t just for the poor or underserved. It’s a great model of care for everyone.” -Andrew Arthur, MD Joined El Rio in 1992.
