History

The WatermarkPMC has a rich tradition and legacy of service to the Metro-Detroit community, dating back at least as early as 1981, when its founder, Dr. Augustine Kole-James opened his first private medical practice and pharmacy under his own name as Dr. Augustine Kole-James, DMD, Pharm.D., PC.   Due in large part to Dr. Kole-James’ caring and nurturing reputation, the health practice grew quickly and, eventually, became known as Professional Medical Centers in 1984, with five multi-specialty clinics in Detroit.  Dr. Kole-James was board certified in internal medicine and cardiology.  He completed his medical education and residency in internal medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine and the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center.  Dr. Kole-James was a visionary and wanted to treat the whole person while being sure everyone had access to affordable, excellent medical care.  To that end, he established Pro-Care Health Plan.  In 2004, he established Pro Care Plus, Inc., which provided health care services to Wayne County residents.  Sadly, Dr. Kole-James died in March 2010.   His wife, Robin Cole, RN, MBA, MSN, succeeded him as president and CEO of PMC and has been working diligently to honor his legacy and chart a forward path for PMC, its patients, providers and staff.

Today, PMC is a patient centered medical home (PCMH), accredited by NCQA.  PMC is currently operating four sites throughout Detroit and has five physicians (internal medicine, family medicine, and pediatrics), several mid-level providers (Advance Practice Nurses and Physician Assistants), registered nurses and clinical support staff.  PMC continues to accept new patients and walk-ins and, following Dr. Kole-James’ legacy, is always working to ensure the entire community has access to affordable, excellent medical care.
