We renewed our contract for several reasons. First of all, we had a very successful three year run and saw no reason to change. — Joe Kirk, COO
Freeman Health System
Joplin, MO (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Premier Anesthesia, a national anesthesia management and consulting company, is proud to announce that Freeman Health System has renewed its contract with Premier Anesthesia for its anesthesia management services for three years until 2015. Freeman Health System, which serves patients in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, has been a client of Premier Anesthesia since July 2009.
One of the reasons for the decision to renew its contract with Premier Anesthesia is due to the fact that Freeman Health System experienced revenue growth while decreasing its subsidy during a period in the healthcare industry of diminishing reimbursements. Due to the anesthesia consulting expertise and experience of Premier Anesthesia’s leadership team, Premier Anesthesia achieved impressive results for Freeman Health System by realizing an 18% subsidy decrease, growing revenue by 11%, and decreasing anesthesia-related costs by 3%.
As a leading anesthesia management company in the industry, Premier Anesthesia maintains a “partnership perspective” and is results-oriented with a proven track record of success for both anesthesia consulting and management models it offers; turnkey anesthesia management (full-service including billing/collections) or service line management; in which Premier Anesthesia provides its expertise and oversight to the existing anesthesia department.
