FreeState partnership points to future of healthcare
Susan B.

Through this partnership, FreeState provides coverage for SBA’s Emergency Department and inpatient care units, utilizing experience of on-site advanced practice practitioners and virtual, real-time collaboration of emergency medicine, internal medicine and pediatric physicians.
Under this new model, SBA will be able to offer more inpatient care services than ever before, including pediatric care, expanded ICU care and subspecialty services like cardiology, infectious disease, psychiatry, rheumatology and others. Because healthcare protocols are standard across all hospital, patients will not see any changes in the care received.
