Information about Orthopedic Surgical Coverage at St. Luke's Hospital
In an effort to enhance patient access to high-quality orthopedic care in our region and meet the growing demands of our community, Southcoast Health System has developed an innovative emergency orthopedic surgery program at St. Luke's Hospital through Southcoast Physicians Group.
A dedicated team of hospital-based orthopedic surgeons are in place at St. Luke's Hospital to compliment the emergency department's capabilities and supplement the orthopedic care delivered by our local surgeons.
This team of board-certified, experienced orthopedic surgeons provides 24/7 orthopedic coverage of the St. Luke's Emergency Department. Through a model of extensive on-site and after hours call coverage, the team ensures quicker access for patients who need emergent orthopedic care. In addition, the surgeons are available for inpatient consultations. To ensure continuity of care, patients seen by the group are followed in our outpatient office located at St. Luke's Hospital.
Southcoast Physicians Group's new hospital-based orthopedic program is in partnership with Delphi Healthcare Partners Inc., a leading provider of surgical specialty hospitalist programs. It will complement the area's orthopedic specialists by providing emergent services only. This new program will improve access to local community-based orthopedic surgeons by allowing local surgeons to focus on their outpatient elective practices.
The surgeon is also available as a resource for the emergency departments and orthopedic surgeons at our Charlton Memorial and Tobey Hospitals.
