CANTON, Ohio, May 31, 2021 – US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) announced it is now providing integrated acute care (IAC) services at Mercy Health – Springfield Regional Medical Center and Mercy Health – Urbana Hospital. USACS currently provides emergency medicine services at both locations. Integrated Acute Care brings the addition of critical care and hospital medicine services together as one team with one purpose: seamless, quality patient care across the entire acute care episode.
“We’re proud to expand our partnership with Mercy Health, as they have been an outstanding partner for many years,” said Dr. Michael Cetta, Chief of Integrated Acute Care Services at USACS. “The USACS IAC program continues to grow as the model of choice for hospitals interested in enhancing quality and patient satisfaction.”
As the area’s only full-service hospital, Springfield Regional Medical Center has served the Clark County community for more than 100 years and offers health services from maternal medicine to palliative care. Urbana Hospital serves Urbana and Champaign County, and is a proud partner of Telestroke with The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center.
“As a health system, we look to partners with those who share the same vision for patient care,” said Adam Groshans, market president, Mercy Health – Springfield. “A vision that emphasizes compassion, quality and access. We believe USACS upholds these priorities in their delivery of care model.”
The USACS model of Integrated Acute Care builds on the USACS commitment to physician ownership by creating a single, accountable team of physician leaders responsible for improvement of patient care throughout the patient's stay, from entrance into the emergency department until discharge, and beyond. The model has led to improvements in key quality metrics, particularly those related to patient experience.
