You need to create another grouping for the physician last name before the physican NPI, just suppress the header and footer that will result from it.

Still keep the grouping at the NPI, so you group by Facility ID, then Last Name, then NPI, since the NPI is the most unique you will still have it grouping correctly.

Another way would be to create a formula to concatenate the last name, first name, and middle name/initial as the second group.  If that still isn't unique, you could concatenate the NPI to the end of the name
