Health District joins with Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians Print E-mail

Health District CEO Bill McMillan announced recently that, effective July 1, Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians, a medical group managed by EM Care, a national emergency department staffing company, will assume staffing for Curry General Hospital’s Emergency Department. 

According to McMillan, Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians and EM Care will allow the hospital to have access to a deeper pool of board certified emergency physicians.

 

“The most important change is that, through Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians, we’ll have a physician on site 24/7,” McMillan said. EM Care is known for its patient-focused practices including customer service training for its physicians, next day call backs, quality assurance programs, and the ability to treat a broader variety of problems in the emergency department, reducing the need to transfer a patient to a higher level of care.

The district would like the public to know one other change: Because Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians is a separate medical group from the hospital, patients using the emergency department will receive a billing from the hospital and a billing from the physicians’ group.

  • Citi to hire 100 bankers in Asia, eyes more business from smaller clients
    Citigroup plans to hire as many as 100 bankers in a renewed push into Asia-Pacific commercial banking, following in rival HSBC's footsteps with a strategy that focuses on selling smaller corporate clients a wider range of products. Global banks like Citi and HSBC are now concentrating on small to medium-sized clients due to a dwindling number of $10 billion-plus IPOs from Chinese state-owned companies - deals which had sustained investment banks in the region over the last decade. The increase in headcount, which represents a 10 percent boost for Citi's Asia-Pacific commercial banking unit, is aimed at offering firms with annual sales of between $10 million and $500 million additional services such as foreign exchange and cash management. "This is not about adding hundreds of new clients in the region, but winning more wallet share from commercial banking clients who have cross-border business by providing them with more loans, FX, cash and trade products," Citi's Asia-Pacific commercial banking head Ashish Bajaj said in an interview.

  • Consumer Reports wants Toyota to recall older Camry hybrids
    An influential consumer magazine on Monday called on Toyota Motor Corp to recall about 177,500 older Camry hybrid sedans to address potential power brake defects. Consumer Reports, which many consumers use when studying what vehicles to buy, said the Japanese automaker's decision to call for a service campaign or a warranty extension on two different problems covering cars from model years 2007 to 2011 does not go far enough. Under a service campaign, an automaker repairs cars as they are brought back to dealers by consumers. "Consumer Reports believes that Toyota should recall these cars," the magazine said.
