Beaver Medical Group staffs over 170 physicians, most of whom are Board Certified. These physicians represent 25 medical specialties, allowing the organization to provide patients a level of care that is among the highest quality and most comprehensive in the Inland Empire region. Beaver Medical Group has eleven offices located throughout Redlands, Highland, Colton, Banning and Yucaipa. Due to Beaver Medical Group’s popularity in the area, the group has expanded adding three brand new facilities in Redlands, Banning and Yucaipa since 2006.

Dr. Meredith Beaver, a surgeon who trained at the famed Mayo Clinic, first began practicing medicine in Redlands in 1932. It wasn’t until the end of World War II in 1945, however, that he decided to establish Beaver Medical Clinic. Joined by three other physicians he had served with in the war - Espy Cannon, M.D., Joseph Hayhurst, M.D., and Gordon Witter, M.D. - he laid the roots for Beaver Medical Group, one of the largest multi-specialty medical group practices in the Inland Empire.

Patients of Beaver Medical Group enjoy many on-site services including:

  • Free Health Education programs
  • Laboratory and radiology services
  • Walk-in clinics open during and after regular hours
  • Medical advice available by phone every day and night of the year

Medical and administrative employees located at Beaver Medical Group facilities are hired by EPIC Management, LP. Healthcare providers including doctors, nurse practitioners, optometrists and physical therapists are hired by Beaver Medical Group.
