Medical Management Service of Nashville, Inc. (MMS) was started in 1974 by our founder, Bill Copeland. During our humble beginnings, Bill was a full time administrator to the largest internal medical group in the state, Frist-Scoville Medical Group, which was founded by Thomas Frist, Sr. who was also the co-founder of Hospital Corporation of America, now Columbia/HCA.
With the practice from its beginnings in 1974, Louise Moore quickly became co-owner with Bill only six years later. Louise, with her expertise in practice management, accounts receivables, physician mergers and accounting and Bill, with his proficiency in administration, complimented each other with their capacious knowledge and made a great team.
Faced with the opportunity to learn in the shadows of two great business leaders, Louise’s son David Moore began working at MMS while still in high school. Over the years, he was able to work his way through every aspect of the business. Louise was able to tutor him in the fundamentals of medical billing and practice management at every level. He also spent several years working under the supervision of Bill Copeland in the areas of medical property management.
Louise and Bill were best friends and co-owners of the company until Bill passed away in 2005 of pancreatic cancer. Louise continued on as President with David stepping into the role of CEO and managing day to day operations. At Louise’s death from cancer in 2010, David had been well prepared by his mentors to take the lead at MMS.
We have been very fortunate to see our company grow over the past forty years to the point that we now serve over 75 physicians and other healthcare providers at any given time. We have always been driven by our one main goal: to provide the highest quality service so that our clients benefit not only financially, but also through knowing that MMS is in the business of building and growing long-term relationships, which ultimately benefits both our clients and their patients alike. We are thankful to have had such quality clients as well as many other individuals who gave us help and support from day one.
