TOTAL HospitalCare is committed to bringing quality, affordable care to the nation's vast network of small, rural, and critical access hospitals. TCHI specializes in the development, staffing, and management of smaller emergency departments and hospitalist programs through the implementation of our hybrid ER/hospitalist model that provides time-effective, efficient use of well-qualified physicians.
While larger hospitals have been able to support hospitalist practices, it has often been financially prohibitive for smaller hospitals to do so. This is particularly true for the more than 1,300 critical access hospitals that need programs that address both emergency and hospital care. TOTAL HospitalCare has developed a model that encompasses both the emergency department and the hospitalist program, thus enhancing quality and continuity of care and resulting in greater patient and staff satisfaction, while providing a significant financial benefit to the hospital.
The management team at TOTAL HospitalCare has over 70 years of collective experience in the management and operational oversight of the hospitalized patient, and includes the provision of these services across the spectrum of facility size and location. The management team has been at the forefront of the evolution of both rural emergency medicine and the hospitalist movement providing emergency and hospitalist services for over 15 years. This background experience has led to an in-depth understanding of the essential interaction between the emergency department, the hospitalist, and the hospital administration. THCI firmly believes that each program must be tailored to the facility and our extensive management experience ensures the ability to adapt to and meet the unique and special needs of the individual hospital.
