There’s a major crisis in emergency surgical care.

Lack of on-call surgeons and rising demand for emergency services has stressed our U.S. hospitals. How do you close care gaps without overloading existing specialists and putting patients at risk?

The surgical hospitalist program pioneered by Surgical Affiliates helps hospitals nationwide close the gap by providing 24/7 emergency general surgery.

Our flexible surgicalist programs can scale up or down over time depending on your needs. With our teams in place to provide 24/7 emergency surgical care, hospitals report increased patient throughput, improved efficiency, and fewer ER headaches.
