Clinical Quality, Innovation & Patient Empowerment Keys to Success

Virginia Beach, Va. — Legacy Care was given the opportunity to secure a permanent medical director for a rural inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Virginia that had been relying on Locum Tenens for an extended period of time. Legacy Care recruited a nationally acclaimed physician – with a proven track record for quality performance – to serve as a permanent medical director. An advanced care practitioner, also renowned for clinical excellence, was recruited as well.

Together, this clinical leadership pair worked collaboratively with medical and administrative teams on-site. Over a two-year period, they developed and drove solutions that led to improved quality scores that were better than national benchmark rates.
