CHI St. Alexius Health has decided to not renew contracts for their existing emergency room doctors. The hospital has decided to contract with HealthSource, a board-certified emergency medicine physician provider.
HealthSource will begin staffing CHI St. Alexius’ Emergency Department starting July 1.
In an email sent to all employees yesterday, hospital president Kurt Schley says this decision comes after no compromise could be made with existing ER doctors with regard to their contracts.
Through HealthSource, the hospital will continue to be fully staffed, and maintain its Level II Trauma Center status.
