Starting on November 13, 2014, CEP America, one of the nation’s largest providers of acute care management solutions, will begin managing and staffing the emergency department at NorthCrest Medical Center
in Springfield, Tenn. NorthCrest is the first health system in the state of Tennessee to collaborate with CEP America.
“As the need to find a new group with which to partner, CEP America became the obvious choice,” said Randy Davis, President and CEO of NorthCrest Medical Center. “In CEP America, we found an organization that shares our commitment to delivering the highest quality care that our patients deserve.”
A leader in acute care services management, CEP America has developed processes and initiatives to better integrate hospital departments and improve the overall patient experience. CEP America’s client hospitals frequently report an average time-to-provider that is significantly lower than the national average. The organization has also set a target for all their ED partners to improve a patient’s time to disposition, thereby reducing the amount of time a patient spends in the ED.
