National Physician Advisory Board
LifePoint Hospitals' National Physician Advisory Board provides on-going strategic guidance on LifePoint’s efforts to engage physicians and develop integrated healthcare delivery systems within its hospitals’ communities. In addition, the group will advise LifePoint on matters related to clinical quality and patient safety, IT solutions and healthcare informatics, physician recruitment, retention and satisfaction and other strategic initiatives undertaken by the company.
“So much of healthcare happens outside the hospital, and it is essential that we engage the physicians in our communities in order to provide a strong continuum of care for our patients,” said Rusty Holman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer for LifePoint. “The National Physician Advisory Board will provide a platform for our company’s leadership to collaborate with community physicians in a strategic and meaningful way. We are very eager to work with an engaged group of physicians to guide LifePoint’s mission of making communities healthier.”
“LifePoint’s vision is for every one of our hospitals to be places where people choose to come for healthcare, physicians want to practice, and employees want to work. By engaging patient-centered physician leaders from across our company’s footprint, we will be in a stronger position to advance all aspects of this vision,” said David Dill, President and Chief Operating Officer for LifePoint.
