Hospital-based Specialty Practices bring us closer to the patient and hospital.

Our hospital-based status provide stronger physician alignment, better communication and collaboration of care, resulting in lower costs, better service, improved outcomes and increased satisfaction.

Services

Orthopedic Surgery

It has become much more difficult for hospitals to negotiate an equitable and shared vision for call with the orthopedic medical staff. The burden of call is much higher for orthopedics due to the volume of patients in the emergency department and the increased follow-up demands. We can convert the burden and cost of emergency department call into a valuable strategic asset. Our system complements local practices and contributes to the hospital’s strategic goals.

  • 24/7 physician coverage
  • Strong on-site physician leadership and collaboration
  • Inpatient and outpatient surgeries
  • Follow-up clinic
  • Consults and Rounding
  • Billing, coding and collections of professional fees
  • Proven infrastructure and support of practice
  • Plus—all surgeries, ancillaries, and professional fees stay in the hospital

Our practice structure is similar in all of our services. The staffing, deliverables and scope of care can be customized to address your hospital’s needs.

Surgical Colleagues provides a stable team of dedicated, board-certified, general surgeons with the skills and experience commensurate with the hospital’s designation, volume, and market demographics.

We provide 24/7 coverage to ensure a quick response to surgical patients in the emergency department. Our dedicated surgeons integrate and collaborate to deliver optimal care and alignment with established goals and performance metrics.

Neurosurgery

Surgical Colleagues has developed a new model for neurosurgical practice management to address market challenges and benefit constituents.
  
Many of our hospital partners need assistance meeting their expanded neurosurgery needs or physician turnover. We are a more engaged physician partner that can provide superior neurosurgery call coverage and valuable specialty practice solutions to impact service, market share and financial performance. All revenues from our practices stay in the hospital to offset our costs. The impact we can have on the "Enterprise" value of your neurosurgery service line is far outweigh our costs.

In collaboration with an experienced and innovative neurosurgeon group, we have designed a unique model to produce recruiting, retention, alignment and practice advantages. Practice design is tailored to hospital designation, volume, patient acuity and desired deliverables. The traditional call models are giving way to a more focused approach, by dedicated surgeons to improve outcomes, patient experience, and optimize ED contributions.

Our scope of service entails experienced neurosurgeons, strong on-site leadership, follow-up clinic, support staff, proven infrastructure and best practices.  We assume responsibility for emergent and unassigned patients presenting to the ED, admitted patients, consults, rounding and discharges.  We refer all elective patients to the local neurosurgeons.

Many community hospitals may have a solo neurosurgeon on their medical staff and need additional help to ensure continuity in coverage and care. We can provide supplemental coverage to augment an existing practice to improve patient access.

Elective Practice Integration

We have designed several options to address different challenges and can customize our models to meet your unique needs.  Integrating elective practices into our call models leverages existing infrastructure and overhead to improve our VALUE. This unique approach provides numerous advantages:

  • Improved community access to surgical specialists
  • Economies of scale via shared clinic space and support staff
  • Recruiting and retention benefits (Call team takes practice call weekends)
  • Practice revenue offsets ED call stipend and improves hospital bottom line
  • Better care collaboration/coordination improves costs and outcomes
  • Stronger physician alignment, performance and accountability

Call us for an integrated hospital based emergent and elective practice consultation.
