"While we invest in state-of-the-art assets—upgraded department units and surgical platforms—we want to promote core care delivery advancements, as well. PhySynergy will help us do that," said Dr. Pam Hudson, CEO of Crestwood Medical Center.
Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
PhySynergy, LLC, a physician-owned medical services organization (MSO), today announced a new client partnership with Crestwood Medical Center; both are located in Huntsville, Alabama. The 150-bed Crestwood facility houses an independent hospitalist program to ensure the very best in patient experiences and positive health outcomes. Under the new partnership, PhySynergy will work to optimize Crestwood’s hospitalist model—further improving its level of patient care while delivering greater fiscal value.
“Partnering with PhySynergy makes sense for us right now,” said Dr. Pam Hudson, CEO of Crestwood Medical Center. “Our standard of care is nationally recognized. We continue to expand our specialty services and our highly-skilled healthcare team. While we invest in state-of-the-art assets—upgraded department units and surgical platforms—we want to promote core care delivery advancements, as well. PhySynergy will help us do that.”
PhySynergy’s prime consulting duties at Crestwood will focus on providing high quality patient care while being responsive to the needs of both the medical staff and the facility. Key priorities are set to include evidence-based protocols, production and quality incentives, as well as clinical leadership accountability. PhySynergy will also support the Crestwood hospitalist program in managing patient throughput, facilitating discharge and post-acute care communications.
“We’re thrilled to receive this opportunity,” commented Ron McDaniel, Vice President of Growth Strategies at PhySynergy. “Hospital medicine is at a crossroads in 2014. We have a growing body of research to support the efficacy of different hospitalist models and protocols. And yet it’s still a relatively new practice area—one that can benefit from the pooled knowledge and leadership experience of our organization’s veteran physicians, non-physician practitioners and business support team.”
