Previous to this, he and his brothers developed one of the first medical groups in Rural Missouri, The James Clinic grew from two physicians in one location to forty three full time physicians and several part-time physicians in nine locations.
These clinics were among the first Certified Rural Health Clinics (RHC) in the state of Missouri. North American Healthcare Management Services began by providing RHC certification services to its clients.
