The Medical Staff Office is the first line of defense in regard to patient safety. This takes place through the credentialing process. Each practitioner that applies through the medical staff process undergoes:
- Primary source verification of their education and training
- Query of the National Practitioner Data Bank
- Query of the sanctions databases for the Office of the Inspector General
- Verification of their affiliations from the point of latest education to the time they apply.
The process is intense and time consuming, but has proven itself over and over again in ensuring that competent, qualified practitioners are caring for our patients.
Hours available: 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 pm
