This week we celebrate the men and women at SpecialtyCare, and all across the country, who make certain that patients receive care from physicians and allied healthcare providers who are properly educated, licensed, and trained in their specialty. National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week acknowledges these professionals and the important role they play in the provision of patient care throughout our healthcare system. Thank you for what you do every day to ensure quality care and patient safety. We appreciate you!
