FOR HOSPITALS

THE WEST COAST CRITICAL CARE SPECIALISTS FOOTPRINT

Critical Care Medicine is a specialty that involves the management of patients with complex and life threatening illness or injury.

Our Intensivist Programs partner with facilities to bring the highest caliber of medicine to every critical care patient, 24 hours a day. Our facilities are staffed exclusively with board-certified/eligible intensivists. This means that all of our physicians have undergone rigorous subspecialty fellowship training in the treatment of a facility’s sickest and most vulnerable patients.

Our group prides itself on delivering world-class critical care to the patients we serve. We offer a turnkey solution; effecting change through involved, collaborative leadership. Physicians who join our team share the common vision that improving quality and safety is a shared responsibility in process improvement.

This is the core of our culture. Our physicians are engaged in various roles throughout our hospitals and our philosophy distinguishes us clearly from the shift-worker model that is ubiquitous with many other groups. We provide the system improvements to enhance existing structure with the outcome of excellent patient care. We outperform like hospitals across the nation.

Every facility has different needs and we also offer advisory/consultant services. Contact us to explore options that will address your pain points and drive improvements for your patients.

LEAPFROG GROUP’S ICU PHYSICIAN STAFFING

We subscribe to the Leapfrog Group’s ICU Physician Staffing guidelines. Our chosen approach to care has long been shown to be the best for patients in that it:

Ensures “optimal care” and minimizes “redundant or conflicting approaches to care”

Haupt MT, et al. Crit Care Med. 2003; 31:2677-2683.

Decreases “intensive care unit complication rate and hospital length of stay”

Gajic O, et al. Crit Care Med. 2008; 36:36–44

Improves “processes of care and staff satisfaction”

Gajic O, et al. Crit Care Med. 2008; 36:36–44

Reduces mortality by 40% within the unit and 30% overall

Pronovost PJ, et al. JAMA. 2002; 288:2151-62Baharoon S, et al. 2016; 12(2):108-13.

“Given the magnitude of its clinical and financial impact, hospital leaders should be asking “how to” rather than “whether to” implement The Leapfrog Group’s ICU Physician Staffing standard.”

Pronovost PJ, et al. Crit Care Med. 2004; 32:1247–1253

Our team is recognized as experts in delivering world-class critical care to the patients we serve.
