Acute Care General Surgery

Improve operating room performance and increase surgical volumes with dedicated, in-house surgeons for acute cases.


Operating room optimization with stable acute care surgery services

A lack of acute surgery coverage can deeply affect a hospital’s efficiency, stability and volume. It can also fracture patient care, causing unnecessary transfers and negatively impacting patient experience. TeamHealth is raising care standards in facilities across the country with 24/7 surgical services for acute and unassigned cases, including dedicated follow-up clinics. Our model eliminates call requirements and increases elective volumes, while ensuring outstanding quality and safety.

With a sharp focus on operating room optimization, our teams improve key metrics, such as reduced ED length of stay, improved throughput and enhanced patient experience. Our teams address facility-specific goals and work closely with hospital leadership to implement tailored growth and improvement plans. This collaborative and customized approach strengthens clinical outcomes, operational performance and patient care.

The acute care surgery program fostered confidence and camaraderie within our teams. It provided a great sense of accomplishment that we could effectively provide timely and expert care to some of the sickest patients in our community.
