Fort Myers, Florida (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
Hospitalist Consultants, Inc. (HCI) is proud to announce the grand opening of a new office in Fort Myers, Florida. HCI will celebrate this occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony on December 8, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. The festivities will take place at the new office building at 4350 Fowler Street, Suite 21, Fort Myers, Florida 33901. The opening of this new office will mark the first expansion of HCI since the company was founded in Traverse City, Michigan in 2009.
HCI is a privately held physician-led hospitalist staffing and management company. They work with client hospitals to ensure recruitment of the highest caliber physicians and midlevels, while providing the best patient care possible. The goal is to utilize the new office space in Fort Myers, to better serve their current client hospitals in the southern region of the US, as well as increase their presence in the healthcare industry nationwide. Over the past two years, HCI has grown tremendously and now serves client hospitals in 11 different states. Hospitalist programs are becoming more common in many hospitals and HCI is not only becoming an expert in the staffing and management process, but they are becoming an innovative leader in the industry.
HCI was created by the management team at Emergency Consultants, Inc. (ECI) which also maintains corporate headquarters in Traverse City, Michigan. ECI was founded in 1972 by James M. Johnson, MD and Robert M. Williams, MD, DRPH, FACEP as a staffing and management company for emergency departments. In 2012, ECI will celebrate its 40th Anniversary, a feat that few other companies in the healthcare industry can boast. Throughout the years, ECI has become one of the leading ED staffing and management groups in the country while remaining physician-led and hospital centric. ECI now serves over 100 facilities in 25 states. The leaders of ECI saw great potential in the hospitalist industry and decided to branch out into hospitalist staffing and management in 2009 with the creation of HCI. This is a budding field and ECI’s success in emergency departments and urgent care centers has boosted HCI to become a top company in the hospitalist industry.
The opening of HCI’s new office is laying the groundwork for company expansion and will help provide better support for their existing client hospitals. HCI is extremely excited to grow into this new space to support new business and help provide new jobs in the Fort Myers area. The ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the new office branch of HCI will be on December 8, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at their new location: 4350 Fowler Street, Suite 21, Fort Myers, FL 33901.
