Tulsa, OK—Core Clinical Partners today announced a major expansion of its hospitalist program, partnering with Hillcrest HealthCare System to provide hospitalist services at eight sites across Oklahoma, serving 180,000 patients annually. Core will officially begin services on December 1st at four facilities and on March 1st, 2022 at the remaining four.
“This partnership provides significant validation for one of Core’s central beliefs,” said Core Clinical Partners CEO Dr. Boykin Robinson. “We believe there is a real need in this environment for a company that can combine the capabilities of a national group with the service and clinical buy-in usually found only in smaller groups. We couldn’t be more excited to put this model to use serving the Hillcrest HealthCare System and the surrounding communities.”
The new partnership will include management of the hospitalist programs at eight sites in five counties in and around Tulsa, OK, including Hillcrest Medical Center, Hillcrest Hospital South, Hillcrest Hospital Pryor, Hillcrest Hospital Claremore, Bailey Medical Center, Hillcrest Hospital Cushing, Tulsa Spine & Specialty Hospital, and Hillcrest Hospital Henryetta.
“Hillcrest is pleased to add Core Clinical Partners to our patient care team as we continue to focus on the best health outcomes and experience for our patients,” said Hillcrest HealthCare System CEO Kevin Gross. “Hillcrest is committed to providing continuity of care for patients, and partnering with Core Clinical Partners for hospitalist services across our eight hospitals will support that goal.”
As part of the expansion, Core will be recruiting approximately 70 clinicians as well as a system medical director. Anyone interested in discussing these opportunities should contact Core Clinical Partners Vice President of Operations Wins Mathew at wmathew@localhost.
