Huggins selects TeamHealth to Enhance Patient Experience in the Emergency Department

Huggins Hospital demonstrated its commitment to continuously improving patient experience by partnering with TeamHealth, one of the nation’s leading providers of emergency department physician staffing and management services. Under this arrangement, TeamHealth will manage a core group of community-based emergency physicians who will be dedicated to providing world-class care, close to home.

Patients will see some new providers as well as some familiar faces in the Huggins Emergency Department with this transition of management services. Huggins Hospital and TeamHealth are pleased that local existing emergency physicians have chosen to sign on with TeamHealth, providing continuity of service and continuing their ongoing commitment to the community.

“TeamHealth clearly understands the needs of our community and the hospital’s drive to provide exceptional care at such an important access point to our organization,” said Jeremy Roberge, Huggins Hospital President and CEO. “TeamHealth will offer us robust quality and performance improvement programs, physician development programs, as well as a formalized risk management program to ensure the highest levels of safety and experience for our patients.”

As of May 1, patients will benefit from the numerous programs and services offered by TeamHealth. “It was clear to us that Huggins Hospital is dedicated to providing efficient, high quality emergency department care for this community,” said Karen Migdelany, Vice President of Operations for TeamHealth’s North East Group. “We are excited to work with such a committed leadership team, medical staff and emergency department personnel.”

Huggins Hospital will introduce the TeamHealth providers to the community as the Emergency Department team grows. To learn more about TeamHealth, please visit www.TeamHealth.com and visit www.HugginsHospital.org to find out how Huggins Hospital is dedicated to addressing your healthcare needs.
