Beverly Hospital – Emergency Medicine
Seasoned clinicians say there’s something truly special about Beverly. They have a talented clinician team, a strong partnership with nursing, and tremendous support from hospital administration. Despite steadily increasing patient volumes, medical director Joseph Chan, lead physician assistant Gary Felix, and nurse manager Charlene Chu have kept time-to-provider under 15 minutes and walkouts below 1%. This year, the team also significantly reduced time-to-discharge while implementing initiatives like Rapid Medical Evaluation and provider-only discharge.
All Vituity Providers
Despite facing a life-threatening pandemic, dealing with significant volume drops, and managing challenging disruptions to personal lives, our Vituity Partners and Advanced Providers came through this year for our patients and our clients in a huge way. There has been so much great work from so many different teams that it's impossible to highlight just one group. From seeing patients in tents and parking lots, innovating in the field and telemedicine, and community outreach, everyone deserves this award for how they stepped up and responded to a pandemic.
Adventist Health Hospital at Home Program - Emergency Medicine & Hospital Medicine
The Adventist Health Hospital at Home Program, led by Vituity emergency and hospital medicine teams, is a core example of how a health system and Vituity can partner on a project that is win-win-win for patients, the health system, and the clinicians. With more than 500 patients admitted at home instead of the hospital, they’ve proven that this model not only works and is safe and effective, but it’s also something that patients and clinicians prefer.
