General Surgery Program

We have expertise in building emergency general surgery programs from the ground up, and in refining well established programs. We support these teams with outstanding clinical leadership and local surgeons who are committed to the hospital and our patient – and who deliver success on both fronts - achieving clinical excellence and ROI for the hospital.

Trauma System Refinement

We start with a gap analysis and continue with monthly reviews and action plans. A local Trauma Medical Director works with the local Trauma Program Manager to oversee the trauma program and focus our experienced clinicians on ensuring we deliver high quality, evidenced based care that meets the national standards of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. Action plans and staff development ensure all requirements are met by the trauma surgeon and supporting staff.

Recruiting and Credentialing

High-end recruitment tools, annual conferences, and a CMO-led vetting process help us attract the best and brightest. We support both local surgeon participation and draw from our national pipeline of qualified experts when additional support is required.

Billing and Coding

We support robust CDI programs and have achieved the necessary documentation standards to support the resource allocation required by the emergency surgery patients. This translates to the right CMI being delivered for these patients and our facilities.

in creating a culture of yes.

Does your hospital have a surgeon on staff to perform emergency abdominal surgery? At 2 a.m.? Yes. As a surgeon, can I focus on elective operations without getting pulled away for emergencies? Yes. Can a patient trust that he will receive the highest quality care without a long wait? Absolutely, yes.
