SouthlandMD has become the trusted industry standard in Emergency Medicine, Hospitalist, Behavioral Health and Outpatient Care to hospitals and behavioral health facilities throughout the Southeast region of the United States, headquartered in Georgia. SouthlandMD operates with 450 physicians across 60 programs and serves over 610,000 patients annually.
SouthlandMD is rooted in demonstrating ethics in every collaborative effort they put forth, constantly striving to receive the best clinical outcome and committed to enhanced quality of care and patient engagement. This passionate commitment translates through the continued expansion of their programs, and is recently showcased in their partnership with acute care, not-for-profit hospital Jefferson Hospital.
Within the partnership, SouthlandMD will manage both the Hospitalist and Emergency Medicine programs at Jefferson Hospital in Louisville, Georgia. SouthlandMD is proud to pair with Jefferson Hospital as they operate a 37-bed (staffed) general acute care facility providing primary medical and surgical care to patients from Jefferson County and the surrounding area.
SouthlandMD has become one of the largest providers of emergency physicians in Georgia, and the addition of Jefferson Hospital represents the 20th Emergency Department, and the 22nd Hospitalist Program partnership for SouthlandMD. Chief Executive Officer Dr. Allen Lee is passionate about SouthlandMD’s impact on patient care and comments on the new partnership:
“It is often a very mutually-beneficial partnership when SouthlandMD provides the operational responsibility of both the Emergency Department and Hospitalist programs to a hospital partner — as these two groups of providers work very closely together to ensure the best patient care and efficiency of provider time, so that small to mid-size hospitals throughout the region can maintain a lower overall census.”
Dr. Allen Lee, M.D., and SouthlandMD continue to set a high standard across the Southeast focused on quality care for patients, trusted staffing for hospitals, while providing rewarding careers for providers.
