"Our mission is to provide hospitals, surgeons and surgical assistants with a rigorously developed surgical assisting solution that contributes to better surgical outcomes and service while reducing costs."
Alpharetta, GA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 16, 2011
Jackson Surgical Assistants (JSA) has expanded its national presence in the practice management solutions arena with the addition of Inova Fairfax Hospital, part of the Inova Health System in Falls Church, Virginia.
Inova Fairfax Hospital is consistently recognized for excellence and innovation, and in 2010 was named one of the nation’s “50 Best Hospitals” by HealthGrades. The hospital also was the first in the Washington, D.C. metro area to receive the Magnet designation for nursing excellence.
This relationship with Inova Fairfax Hospital further demonstrates JSA's ability to provide trained, thoroughly-credentialed surgical assistants to hospitals, which - given the recent changes in healthcare legislation - are increasingly focused on saving costs and improving quality.
"Our mission is to provide hospitals, surgeons and surgical assistants with a rigorously developed surgical assisting solution that contributes to better surgical outcomes and service while reducing costs," said Paul Foster, President of JSA. "Partnering with Inova combines two organizations focused on excellence."
Highly skilled surgical assistants provide services essential for the well-being of patients and the success of surgical teams. JSA's program improves operating room productivity by implementing best practices for surgical assisting, especially as it relates to the scheduling process and contributing to room turnover times.
"Jackson Surgical Assistants provides us with comprehensive, consistent coverage across multiple service lines with a single point of contact at a lower cost per case than providing the service ourselves,” said Patrick Christiansen, COO of Inova Fairfax Hospital.
