Health District joins with Wild Rivers Emergency Physicians

 

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.
