Marina Medical announced today that it has partnered with Emergency Physicians Affiliates in San Antonio, TX ("EPA") to provide billing and practice management services to EPA's five emergency departments.

Cerritos, CA and San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) May 14, 2009 -- Marina Medical announced today that it has partnered with Emergency Physicians Affiliates in San Antonio, TX ("EPA") to provide billing and practice management services to EPA's five emergency departments. EPA's hospitals include Baptist Medical Center, Northeast Baptist, North Central Baptist, Southeast Baptist, and St. Luke's Baptist, which together have 1,753 licensed beds and 157,000 ED visits annually.

"The Baptist Health System has a proud history of serving the people of San Antonio for more than a century, and since 2003 the System has been owned and operated by Vanguard Health Systems," according to Michael Connellan, Chairman and CEO of Marina. "We're proud to have been selected by EPA to help maintain these long traditions of quality, patient care and service in South Texas. EPA's commitment to exceptional patient care, constant improvement and growth in Texas fits our own profile perfectly."

According to Timothy N. ("Tim") Taylor, M.D., FACEP, President of EPA, "Marina was selected after a rigorous national search because of their record of exceptional results, focus on emergency medicine, outstanding coding and physician documentation education, and their digital paperless technology. Marina's people are knowledgeable, responsive and easy to work with, and we feel really comfortable with them. We expect to have a very successful mutual relationship for many years to come."

EPA has been the emergency medicine partner of choice for the Baptist Health System for 35 years, bringing the highest quality of emergency medicine to the growing population of South Texas. Vanguard Health Systems, Inc. is a leading national operator of acute care hospitals and outpatient facilities in Texas, Arizona, Illinois and Massachusetts.

Since 1981, Marina Medical Billing Service, Inc. (www.marinabilling.com) has been converting emergency care into compensation for physicians and hospital clients across the nation, and today - as one of the five largest firms in its industry in the country - manages over $1 billion a year in emergency medicine claims.
