Our Message

The formation of the Missouri Physicians Health Foundation in 1985, by the Missouri State Medical Association was due in large measure to the crusading efforts of Donald McIntosh, MD, a Kansas City anesthesiologist. In 1977 the MSMA formed an Ad hoc Committee on the Distressed Physician. The committee, which Dr. McIntosh chaired, was mandated to study the incidence of the problem of impairment in Missouri. The committee issued “The Mcintosh Report” in 1978 which was instrumental in the establishment of the first physician hotline, and subsequently the eventual formation of the MPHP. Dr. McIntosh once stated, “we have a responsibility to our colleagues to be concerned enough about them to respond to their problems.” 

Dr. McIntosh saw each physician as a valuable resource who had dedicated long years of study and financial resources in order to practice medicine. He also knew that in most cases these physicians could be helped and enabled to return to their chosen profession, after a period of rehabilitation. The MPHP strives to keep his vision alive by serving today’s physicians in need. We are proud to honor his memory and strive to uphold the high standard which he set.
