WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialists On Call, Inc. (SOC) announced today that it is hiring additional operations and business development staff to address the accelerating demand for services in Virginia. SOC is the country's largest provider of emergency neurology on-call services to hospitals, having already managed more than 5,500 emergency neurology consultations to date.
Dr. Joe Peterson, CEO, described the company's ongoing expansion, "We are pleased that our model for providing hospitals with immediate 24/7 access to neurology on-call coverage is generating demand in new states and facilities, and accelerating our growth in states in which we are active today, like Virginia. Our model delivers clinical and financial benefits to our hospital clients and their patients. At the same time, we relieve local neurologists of the burden of call, while not taking referrals or procedures from them. In fact, our partners consistently expand their acute neurology volumes in our model creating a win for all participants, which is accelerating the growth of our business. SOC will continue its expansion of the emergency neurology resources available to hospitals in Virginia in the year ahead."
SOC is a private provider of emergency neurology consultations by telemedical link, and is accredited by the Joint Commission as an ambulatory care organization. Karen Deli, SVP for Operations, explained, "Our successful offering is built upon a track record of clinical excellence that has our team of affiliated neurologists as its foundation. Today we're offering a rewarding work addition to experienced neurologists interested in emergencies and stroke, and the depth of our neurology resources will stay well ahead of the growing demand."
Dr. Peterson summarized, "With every chance we get to expand our service, we get the chance to extend access to state-of-the-art neurology care to emergency patients that otherwise have to do without. In many emergencies, but especially in acute strokes, our ability to intervene in minutes can have remarkable impact upon the patient's recovery, dramatically bettering the lives of patients and their families."
Specialists On Call, Inc., is a private, national, professionally managed, physician led telemedicine company that provides access to the clinical expertise of a team of university and private practice specialists through a consolidated teleconferencing, PACS and EMR system.
