Case Studies: Integrated Pediatric Care Reduces Pediatric Transfers
With no pediatric program and an insufficient number of pediatricians to staff its emergency department (E.D.), Lakewood Ranch Medical Center was unable to consistently meet growing demand for pediatric care. The facility was frequently forced to transfer pediatric patients to other facilities in the area, resulting in revenue loss for the hospital and significant cost to patients’ families.
Envision and hospital leadership prioritized ending the need for pediatric patient transfers.
