Keystone Healthcare Management, a growing and innovative provider of Emergency and Hospital Medicine physician staffing and management services, has announced a partnership with Covington County Hospital.

Covington County Hospital is a rural facility located in Collins, MS. The hospital opened in 1951 and in 2005 became a 25-bed critical access hospital. Covington employs about 300 people in the local community and sees almost 9,000 ED visits per year.

The partnership between Keystone and Covington will help the hospital better serve the medical needs of the community. Keystone will manage the hybrid EM/HM program, providing a Medical Director, physicians and advanced practice providers, as well as industry best practices for managing each department.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to bring our EM/HM Hybrid Service Model to Covington,” said Glenn Adams, President of Keystone. “Along with the improved results in quality and outpatient/inpatient care coordination, Keystone will provide needed relief and support to the medical staff and primary care providers.”

Keystone will assume staffing and management responsibilities starting January 15, 2016.
