Hospital Medicine Subspecialties
Quality, devotion and a practice model built around a specific practice area.PLAY: Surgical Services' commitment to patient care and clinician growth
Answering the in-house versus out-source question
Let’s face it—lack of in-house specialty support is a growing issue with many roots, such as:
- Physicians refusing to provide specialty call coverage
- Rising call coverage stipends
- Shortage of surgeons to cover ED call
- Specialists moving away to subspecialties
- Inability to attract new specialists
- Failure to attain a Trauma Center designation
- Patient outmigration and decreased market share
Fortunately, our specialty services are the fix for patient diversions, longer stays, lost revenue, and damaged reputation.
Our guaranteed call coverage and in-house specialty coverage improves the emergent surgical experience. We can turn program costs into incremental revenue, optimize for reimbursement, and ensure compliance and quality care with our on-site physician leadership and quality improvement programs. By removing the call burden from your specialists, we add surgical volume, increase market share, improve throughput, and save you money.
Our OB-ED model fundamentally changes how hospitals care for expectant mothers. It enhances patient satisfaction and increases hospital revenue. It creates a safer and more comfortable birth experience for mother, baby, and family, and it offers a safer place for private OB/GYN physicians to practice.
Local physicians embrace our model because it means they can add more cases on their own terms. Our services reduce outmigration, improve market share, and accelerate the financial contributions from ED call.
With our model, you can significantly increase your surgical volume by accepting and appropriately treating all emergent general surgical patients, including transfers.
