Physicians are vital partners in our efforts to make communities healthier. We value physician input and rely on physician leadership to evolve and improve the way we deliver high quality care. We have established collaborative channels at the local and national levels through which we engage our physicians.

National Physician Advisory Board

LifePoint's National Physician Advisory Board was created in 2013 to provide strategic guidance to the company on efforts related to enhancing clinical quality, physician engagement and innovative models of healthcare delivery. The group includes a cross section of both employed and independent physician practices from a range of geographic locations and provides a platform for company leadership and select physician leaders from our communities to collaborate.

Physician Guidance Councils

Our guidance councils bring together providers from across our organization to provide counsel for the development and implementation of enterprise-wide service line strategies for our emergency departments and cardiovascular services, improving the patient experience and ensuring the delivery of safe, compliant, high quality care at our facilities nationwide.

Local Engagement

Our operating philosophy is rooted in the belief that healthcare is local. To that end, each of our hospital's board of trustees is host to physician leadership, so that physicians are always part of framing the strategic direction of our facilities and are integral to discussions surrounding capital investments, quality, services and growth.
