From the Oelwein Daily Register:
Mercy Hospital has announced that an Iowa-based emergency medicine practice, Acute Care Inc., has been selected to provide emergency physicians who will staff the Emergency Department 24-hours-a-day, 365 days a year.
“There has been some confusion about coverage of the emergency department. People need to know that they can depend on Mercy Hospital for their emergency care needs,” said Marketing Director Andrea Barker.
Acute Care has provided weekend physician coverage since 2008, and now provides physician coverage around the clock.
“Our partnership with Acute Care is being expanded to full time coverage,” said Terri Derflinger, Mercy Hospital Administrator. “To the community and patients, that means having a doctor ready to provide care for you, any time you need it. Our Emergency Department continues to be a great resource for our community and Acute Care has shown that it is dedicated to providing exceptional and compassionate health care services right here in Oelwein.”
