LifePoint strives to make each of our hospitals a place where physicians want to practice, and we believe that physician leadership and input is essential to a hospital’s success. That’s why our medical staffs are actively involved in improving the delivery of healthcare in our hospitals and our communities.
Nationally, we work to provide opportunities for physicians to collaborate with their peers and offer guidance on ways LifePoint can better serve its communities, hospitals and medical staffs. Through the Office of the Chief Medical Officer, we work with groups such as the physician IT advisory committee and medical staff leadership conference to seek physician input on issues including quality care and service improvements, corporate and hospital policies and procedures, and physician relations and retention.
“It is more important than ever that physicians, hospitals and healthcare corporations work together to face the changes and challenges of the healthcare industry. LifePoint is fortunate to have so many outstanding physicians affiliated with our hospitals, and we value their input in all that we do.”
William Carpenter, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, LifePoint Hospitals
