Through the partnership, RMH will manage the emergency room (ER) and the faith-based health system will provide emergency medicine physicians and medical direction.
The partnership will enhance the level of emergency care for Rush County residents and will ensure patients have increased access to advanced specialty care, according to RMH CEO Brad Smith.
"I am very excited about the relationship that has developed between Rush Memorial and St. Vincent as it relates to our Emergency Department," Smith said. "When we have St. Vincent physicians working side-by-side with our outstanding nursing staff, this will only bring added value to our patients and increase the quality of emergency care offered in our community."
Through the partnership with St. Vincent, Rush County and surrounding communities will have immediate access to the air transport services of StatFlight.
