Practitioner Staff Affairs Department News

28-Aug-2017

In an effort to continue with transparency in practice and open communication with the practitioner staff, the Practitioner Staff Affairs (PSA) office would like to convey information related to concern handling, contract processing and recruitment efforts.

  • The PSA office is currently assisting medical leadership (Section Heads/Department Heads and the SMO) with 17 existing practitioner concerns. Six practitioner concerns were forwarded in the last 30 days, and four have been concluded.
  • The PSA office continues to work through both administrative medical leadership contracts and clinical contracts. These are a mix of both new positions and renewal of existing contracts. The patience of those practitioner staff with contacts in progress is greatly appreciated. Twenty-four new contracts have been created and offered to practitioners in the last 30 days. Outstanding contracts remain a priority for the PSA office.
  • Our recruiting staff continue to work with departments to address the practitioner demands of the region. Ten new practitioners have been recruited to the region in the last 30 days.
