EMERGENCY ROOM MDS AND HOSPITALISTS
Emergency Department Physician and Hospitalist services are contracted with EMCARE a physician-led Medical Management company that helps bring partnerships between emergency medicine and hospitalist physicians and hospitals who might otherwise encounter difficulties in staffing these positions. EMCARE helps hospitals manage their emergency departments and hospitalist programs for greater profitability, improved quality of care and higher levels of patient satisfaction.
Hospitalists are physicians whose practice is devoted to treating patients in a hospital setting. Because the hospital is the primary site of their practice they are usually able to spend more time with patients than would your regular physician making "rounds" of all of his patients on his lunch hour, or on his way home after office hours. The hospitalist communicates with your primary care physician, but handles your care during time spent as an inpatient at the hospital.
Emergency Physicians are available around-the-clock, seven days a week in the Dodge County Hospital Emergency Department. Hospitalists are also available and work in conjunction with the Emergency Department physicians in admitting patients requiring hospitalization after presenting in the ER.
Physical Therapy services are contracted with Sapp’s Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine. Sapp’s main office is in Hawkinsville, Georgia, however they have branch offices in Eastman, Cochran, and Warner Robins.
