Surgicalist Programs

OUR SURGICALISTS IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES BY KEEPING SURGERY LOCAL.

With full-time, dedicated surgeons on site, your patients will most likely be treated by the same surgeon pre-surgery and post-surgery.

Rural Physicians Group is staffed by hospitalist and surgicalist physicians that are committed to providing excellent patient care in the most cost-effective manner. Each physician understands the business of healthcare and is a champion of implementing EHR/EMR-CPOE, core measure compliance, and enhancing the patient experience.

Key Benefits

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A SURGICALIST PROGRAM:

Total Coverage

Full-time general surgeons are available 24/7, 365 days per year, rotating every 14 days. In fact, 90% of surgical patients will be seen by the same surgeon for surgery and post discharge follow up. This helps to limit risk exposure with stabilization and transfer of high acuity patients.

Collaborative Care

Communication between the PCP, ED physician, and hospitalists are enhanced. Surgicalists are available for outpatient consultations with community providers.

Improved Patient Outcomes

Earlier surgical evaluation, intervention, and discharge increases the quality of care at your hospital.

Efficiencies of Care

Increased ED throughput with timely evaluations and dispositions, increased CMI, decreased transfers out of the community, and increased ancillary support all produce a higher level of efficiency at your hospital.

Enhanced Leadership

Our surgicalists participate in medicine committees, support excellent core measure compliance, and are champions of EMR/CPOE implementations.

Superior to Locum Tenens

Because we work with hospitals on a long-term basis, our surgicalists are considered part of the hospital and community. It’s a more stable, long-term solution to continuity of care.

Healthier Communities

At the end of the day, Rural Physicians Group exists to provide a higher level of care to patients in need, and our surgicalist program was designed to keep rural communities healthy.
