Our clinical leaders practice in the hospitals we serve. That means they, along with our local Medical Directors, are on-site from the very beginning working with hospital leadership to deal with issues and challenges when they happen, not six months later when things are out of hand.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (Vocus) June 10, 2010
Hospital Physician Partners, an industry leader in Emergency and Hospitalist Medicine management, announced today the addition of 12 new contracts during the first 5 months of 2010. This growth continues the trend in 2009 which resulted in 26 new contracts. This year’s expansion includes new emergency department and in-patient Hospitalist program contracts in Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas and solidifies Hospital Physician Partners as one of the fastest growing Medical Management companies in the United States.
“Our Clinical Operations teams’ expertise and dedication on a local level in our client hospitals continues to be our greatest asset,” said Hospital Physician Partners Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Schillinger. “Our clinical leaders practice in the hospitals we serve. That means they, along with our local Medical Directors, are on-site from the very beginning working with hospital leadership to deal with issues and challenges when they happen, not six months later when things are out of hand.”
Last year, the Hospital Physician Partners’ Clinical Operations leadership team worked 1,086 shifts representing over 11,000 clinical hours in client hospitals. Nationally, Hospital Physician Partners and its affiliates treat over two-million patients annually and work with more than 1800 providers.
In addition to the staffing and management of emergency department and Hospitalist programs nationwide, Hospital Physician Partners’ affiliate, PhyAmerica Government Services, Inc. (PGS), provides healthcare staffing and management solutions for military facilities including hospitals, clinics and urgent care centers, plus state-run facilities and other government healthcare entities. PGS also partners with small businesses that are seeking to provide services to government healthcare facilities.
“The larger you grow as a company, the greater the challenge becomes to remain local,” says Schillinger. “That’s something we’ve got to be able to hold on to. It's what sets us apart from the competition. Hospital Physician Partners will continue to be there as a medical management resource for hospitals seeking to improve their service delivery and the overall patient experience.”
