Insurers will typically have an online directory of providers, both individuals (doctors, podiatrists, etc.) and organizations (hospitals, rehab centers, imaging centers). Some may also have print directories of providers.

How can I determine if a doctor will be focused on wellness and prevention?
Doctors are increasingly concerned about promoting information on wellness and prevention. However, many doctors are not well-trained in these fields and many doctors may not have the time or interest to provide this information. You, as a patient, however, have every right to expect and demand it.
How can I find out what hospital a doctor uses?
There are a number of ways to find out where and if a physician has an appointment to a hospital medical staff or, in other words, has admitting privileges at a hospital. Ask the hospital; ask the doctor; check various websites that offer information on doctors. Some doctors, particularly in smaller communities, may have medical staff privileges at more than one hospital.
