Three Rivers Health selects American Physician Partners for Emergency Department

Three Rivers Health has selected American Physician Partners (APP) to enhance the already high level of care it provides to the more than 20,000 patients who visit its Emergency Department annually. APP is one of the nation’s leading providers of emergency department management services to community hospitals nationwide, and they have a strong presence throughout Michigan.

“In searching for the right partner for our hospital, we selected APP because of their proven track record for providing safe, efficient and compassionate care to every patient, every time,” said David Shannon, CEO, Three Rivers Health. “They have the ability to recruit and retain high-quality emergency medicine providers, and they bring best practices in a number of key clinical areas, including champions for sepsis, early stroke identification and treatment, and opioid prescribing standards. We believe this translates into an enhanced experience for our patients and their families.”

APP began providing emergency department management services effective May 1, 2019, and retained the full-time physicians already on staff, ensuring continuity of care. This team will be supplemented with strong medical director leadership and the resources necessary to enhance clinical quality, reduce patient wait times, and enhance overall patient satisfaction.
