In 2008, when physician leaders of member urology practices began to recognize the need for a formal association to help meet the challenges of the future, the Large Urology Group Practice Association (LUGPA) was established with the purpose of enhancing communication among large groups, allowing for benchmarking of operations, promoting quality clinical outcomes, developing new opportunities, and improving advocacy in the legislative and regulatory arenas. LUGPA has modified its bylaws and now welcomes memberships for all physician colleagues regardless of size. All urologists may benefit from the growing LUGPA network.
