Noting the rapidly changing marketplace and new legislative requirements for the nation’s hospitals, Sonora Regional Medical Center
has tapped CEP America
, one of the nation’s leading providers of acute care management solutions, to manage its hospitalist department. As of October 1, CEP America physicians will be charged with providing inpatient care to patients admitted to the hospital, while ensuring close collaboration with admitting physicians and seamlessly integrating with other providers in the system.
“Delivering excellence in quality care and service to our patients is our priority,” said Andrew Jahn, Chief Executive Officer at Sonora Regional Medical Center. “CEP America is a leader in hospitalist department management best practice. We’re looking forward to working in partnership with them to make sure we continue to deliver coordinated care that exceeds patient expectations.”
CEP America is a physician owned and operated medical organization that works with hospitals to integrate patient care across the acute care continuum, while improving clinical outcomes and patient experiences. With hospitals facing the loss of revenue as the nation transitions from fee-for-service (FFS) to value-based care (VBC), more are turning to CEP America to help manage programs and maintain profitability.
“Now is a challenging and uncertain time for hospitals,” said Denise Brown, M.D., Vice President of Practice Development at CEP America. “We have a proven track record with more than 100 hospitals nationwide. We know that our program and team of physicians will help Sonora exceed their operational and patient care goals.”
Sonora Regional Medical Center is part of Adventist Health
, a faith-based, not-for-profit integrated health care delivery system serving communities in California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington.
