Citizens Business Bank Selected As 2020 Premiere Business Partner With San Bernardino County Medical Society


NEWS RELEASE — Inland Empire, CA. – The San Bernardino County Medical Society (SBCMS) has announced that Citizens Business Bank (the “Bank”) has been selected as a new premiere business partner for 2020, providing specialized financial services for physicians and medical groups.

Citizens Business Bank (the “Bank”), well known and respected throughout the Inland Empire, is a financial services company that provides personalized solutions for small to medium-sized businesses, including healthcare. The Bank’s relationship managers have been managing the needs of physicians, medical groups and healthcare organizations across San Bernardino County for more than 45 years. They possess the training and expertise required to work with the specialized field of medical practitioners at all levels, whether that be guidance on owning and financing a medical practice, wealth management and estate planning, charitable outreach or safety in investment and business development components of each practice.

Mark Bai, MD, SBCMS President, said, “It’s the goal of SBCMS to partner with organizations who are dedicated to offering highly tailored services or discounts to its members. In this instance, joining forces with the Bank is an ideal pairing, as Citizens Business Bank will enhance the functionality and profitability of physicians, providers and medical practices of varying modes and sizes.”

As a premiere business partner, the Citizens Business Bank team will work closely with physicians throughout San Bernardino County and the Inland Empire to ensure streamlined procedures and financial efficiency which, in turn, allow physicians to provide more comprehensive healthcare services to residents of our region. The Bank’s team shares the ethos that high performing and well-organized medical practices lead directly to healthy and productive families and communities who thrive.

The Bank will collaborate with SBCMS to fulfill the objective of simplifying the financial aspect of practicing medicine, removing barriers upon physician practices which otherwise limits their ability to treat patients and ensure access to care for all.

Efforts will include workshop and training sessions, individual outreach with member physicians, participation in SBCMS/CMA events, educational communications with physicians and guidance in practice management.
