Date:4/27/2009

Leading Emergency Department Organization Implementing Planned Actions to Address Problem

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Lynn Massingale, M.D., FACEP, co-founder and executive chairman of national emergency department staffing and management organization TeamHealth, today outlined several action steps in response to the emergence of swine flu in the United States.

"The recent occurrence of swine influenza (H1N1) infections in humans is a public health concern and underscores the need to prepare all U.S. emergency departments (EDs) to respond to a potential pandemic," said Dr. Massingale, a board-certified emergency physician.

"Since 2006, TeamHealth has been developing and implementing a pandemic influenza preparedness initiative in collaboration with state and federal agencies and many of the almost 300 EDs we serve. As of today, we are undertaking a number of planned actions to help prepare our constituents for a potential pandemic," he said. "These include the distribution of educational material about swine flu to our affiliated physicians and other caregivers and informing our employees of appropriate steps to take to protect themselves and their families. In addition to reporting any potential or confirmed cases of swine flu to appropriate public health agencies, our national presence uniquely positions TeamHealth to help identify new regions of outbreak.

"I want to extend my gratitude to all TeamHealth-affiliated providers and other emergency caregivers who will play an important role in diagnosing and treating cases of swine flu in order to prevent further spread of the virus. We would like to thank these front-line caregivers who frequently place themselves in harm's way in an effort to mitigate the very real danger of this disease," said Dr. Massingale.
