McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac is outsourcing its acute care and trauma surgical services to respond to patients in a more timely fashion.
The hospital is contracting with Sacramento, Calif.-based Surgical Affiliates, which will provide acute care and trauma surgeons on duty and on site 24/7.
The deal increases the number of trauma surgeons from five to nine, McLaren Oakland spokeswoman Heidi McGlinnen said. McLaren staff surgeons will now be contracted and credentialed under Surgical Affiliates.
