Record Breaker: How a Medical Directorship Beat National Quality Scores in an Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital

THE CHALLENGE: Nationwide, rural and underserved communities often face challenges in the recruitment and retention of specialized healthcare teams. Legacy Care was given the opportunity to secure a permanent medical director for a rural inpatient rehabilitation hospital that had been relying on Locum Tenens for an extended period of time. Consistent medical director leadership was needed to drive sustainable patient quality scores and outcomes.

LEGACY CARE SOLUTIONS: 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.
