Robin Locke Nagele Co-Authors Article on Maintaining a Unified Medical Staff in Multi-Hospital Systems for AHLA

May 11, 2017

In the May 2017 issue of Hospitals & Health Systems Rx, a publication of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) Hospitals and Health Systems Practice Group, Health Care Group Co-Chair Robin Locke Nagele co-authored the article, "Maintaining a Unified Medical Staff in a Multi-Hospital System." The article, written in collaboration with Deborah A. Datte of Abington Health and Aria Health System, examines how to efficiently and effectively manage hospital governance and medical staff functions across a health system with an expanding footprint.

The authors note in the article: 

"As health care mergers proliferate and hospital systems expand and grow into regional and national systems, they are constantly confronting the question of how to manage the hospital governance and medical staff functions across the system in the most efficient and effective manner. One way of accomplishing this is through the unification of the governing bodies and medical staffs of multiple separately certified hospitals in a single system.1A s health care mergers proliferate and hospital systems expand and grow into regional and national systems, they are constantly confronting the question of how to manage the hospital governance and medical staff functions across the system in the most efficient and effective manner.
