AAEM Statement on USACS Replacement at Summa Health
By now most of you have heard about Akron-based Summa Emergency Associates (Akron City Hospital EM Residency) and their sudden termination and replacement by US Acute Care Solutions at all of the Summa Health System EDs. This literally overnight transition to a new group of physicians most of whom, to the best of our understanding, are unfamiliar with the hospitals, the EDs, their staffs, the EMS systems and the EMR/CPOE, creates a potential patient safety issue in the short term. The displaced group is physician owned and has been in existence for 40 years.
