April 25, 2019

Meridian, MS

Keystone Healthcare Management, a growing and innovative provider of Emergency Medicine and Hospital Medicine physician staffing and management services, has announced a partnership with Anderson Regional Medical Center (ARMC) to provide Emergency Medicine staffing and management services. Keystone began managing the Hospitalist ARMC in March 2017.

ARMC is located in Meridian, Mississippi. The hospital was first opened by a local doctor as Anderson Infirmary in 1928, with 30 beds. It is now a 400-bed facility, with 30,000 annual ED visits.

This further partnership between Keystone and ARMC will help the hospital continue to serve the medical needs of the community, while improving communication and synergy between departments. Keystone will provide a Medical Director, board-certified physicians and advanced practice providers, as well as industry best practices for managing the department.

“We have established a good working relationship with Keystone through their effective management of our Hospital Medicine program. We look forward to the successes that will come from expanding that relationship into Emergency Medicine,” said John G. Anderson, President and CEO, Anderson Regional Health System.

“We are very excited to continue to grow and strengthen our relationship with Anderson Regional Health System,” said Dr. Hatem Mourad, Keystone’s Director of Hospital Medicine and ARMC’s HM Site Medical Director. “We believe that our integration of EM and HM services will continue our mutual success in the delivery of excellent medical care to the community we serve. ARHS have been an outstanding partner and we are proud to be a part of such a great organization.”

Keystone assumed staffing and management responsibilities of the Emergency Department starting April 1, 2019.
