Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital > Providers > FreeState HealthCare
Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital offers a collaborative care model of staffing providers in the Emergency Department and as Hospitalists, using the services of FreeState Healthcare. FreeState employed Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants staff the Emergency Department, supported by telemedicine access to physicians offsite who guide and advise, assisting to provide comprehensive local care.
Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants are highly trained advance practice practitioners who work closely with physicians. FreeState physicians are available 24/7 as part of the clinical team. This reduces unnecessary transfers and increases expertise and patient confidence. FreeState has access to a number of specialists, including neurology, cardiology, infectious disease and psychiatry who may be accessed to the hospital via videoconferencing technology to assist with patient care. All FreeState physicians are experienced physicians who provide the same quality patient care that a hospitalist would provide in person. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants and physicians cover every aspect of provider care.
