FAIRFIELD MEDICAL CENTER TO WELCOME NEW EMERGENCY MEDICINE GROUP IN JANUARY

LANCASTER, Ohio (December 23, 2013) – On Jan. 1, Fairfield Medical Center will welcome Emergency Medicine Physicians (EMP) as its new emergency medicine group. Based out of Canton, Ohio, EMP is one of the leading providers of emergency medical services in the nation, with more than 800 emergency medicine physicians treating patients in 60 healthcare facilities nationwide.
 
While national in scope, the president of EMP is Dr. David Scott, who is a Lancaster High School graduate and the brother of current ED physician Dr. John Scott. EMP’s director of clinical operations is Lancaster native Dr. James Augustine, who is a graduate of Fisher Catholic High School.
 
“We look forward to working with the new doctors and their directors to strategize on efficiencies and continue to implement best practice approaches to care in the upcoming year,” said Mark Sedor, manager of FMC’s ED.
 
EMP dedicates a team of physicians and clinicians to each of its emergency departments. This change will result in a number of new faces in FMC’s ED, as well as some familiar ones: Six existing physicians from Fairfield Emergency Physicians, Inc. (FEPI) are joining EMP and will continue to work in the FMC ED. The current ED physicians partnered with FMC to find the new physician group.
 
For the first six months, EMP will station what they call “Firefighters” at FMC. These are highly-trained physicians who are masters of change. In addition to these physicians, there will be an Interim Medical Director, Dr. Steven Rudis, and an Interim Assistant Medical Director, Dr. Annie Sinnott, who will be at FMC full-time throughout the transition. In the near future, EMP will assign a dedicated team to FMC.
 
“We only hire residency-trained, board-certified emergency physicians,” said Dr. Augustine. “These physicians come to live in the community and be part of the community and are dedicated to service here.”
 
Dr. Augustine said EMP is dedicated to collaborating with the ED staff and FMC medical staff to provide service that is viewed by patients and families as “outstanding.”
 
“We work very hard to train our physicians and clinicians about how to take care of people when they are having the worst day of their life,” he said.
