Northern Hospital of Surry County Announces Arrival of Eight New Hospitalists to Provide Inpatient Care
Northern Hospital of Surry County is pleased to announce that eight new, full-time physicians joined its Medical Staff as its new hospitalist group to provide inpatient care on Monday, December 3, 2012. This transition of the hospitalist program is reflective of the hospital’s commitment to serve its patients in a manner that truly puts the patients first as it works to improve all aspects of the patient experience.
The physicians, all of whom are Board Certified in Internal Medicine, include:
Dr. Tamas Bathory, Dr. Whitney French, Dr. Allen Jones, Dr. Angelce Kikerkov, Dr. Penny McDonald, Dr. Eric Melvin, Dr. Aniko Toth-Bagi, and Dr. William Lawing.
Each of the physicians have at least eight years of continuous hospitalist experience and all previously worked together at a tertiary care medical center in the Piedmont Triad . They also often worked with Northern Hospital’s Emergency Department and referring physicians, frequently partnering with them in the care of their acute patients who needed to be transferred. As a result, they became familiar with Northern Hospital’s staff and procedures and found it offered what they were looking for. They all have embraced the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the residents of Northern Hospital’s service area.
The hospitalist service is an integral component in the provision of quality patient care at Northern Hospital. With this transition it is confident that it will successfully serve its patients’ needs for years to come.
