Louisville, GA | January 6, 2022 – SouthlandMD will manage both the Hospitalist and Emergency Medicine programs at Jefferson Hospital in Louisville, Georgia. The partnership with Jefferson Hospital will consist of patient care and operating the Emergency Department and inpatient services for the 37-bed general acute care facility in Jefferson County.
CEO Dr. Allen Lee is passionate about SouthlandMD’s impact on patient care and comments on the new partnership: “It is often a very mutually-beneficial partnership, when SouthlandMD provides the operational responsibility of both the Emergency Department and Hospitalist programs to a hospital partner — as these two groups of providers work very closely together to ensure the best patient care and efficiency of provider time, so that small to mid-size hospitals throughout the region can maintain a lower overall census.”
The addition of Jefferson Hospital represents the 20th Emergency Department, and the 22nd Hospitalist Program partnership for SouthlandMD.
