Benefits for Community Surgeons

1 No call responsibilities
on unassigned patients.

2 Surgicalists will refer all the
elective cases back to the clinic.

3 Surgicalists will partner with community surgeons at the
level requested to assist with the clinic’s urgent problems.

4 Clinic will no longer be interrupted
by an acute patient in the ED.

5 No more night or
weekend disruptions.

6 No more changes in office
scheduling because of call.

7 Local surgeons will be able to focus
solely on elective practice.

8 Experience has shown that efficiency increases by approximately 20% when relieved of ED call. This will allow for more volume and income, or the same income with more free time.
