Our ED Physicians face unique challenges not customarily faced by other ED physicians in our County

  • We must independently care for a full slate of patients while supervising and teaching inexperienced residents and medical students and overseeing the overall flow within the Department in conjunction with the Charge Nurse to ensure efficient processing and patient care.
  • We receive frequent phone calls regarding incoming transfers from Urgent Cares, other E.D.’s, and physician offices.
  • We are frequently called upon to give medical advice to providers staffing and the Urgent Cars in our system.
