During this year’s National Physicians Assistants Week, Oct. 6-12, West Holt Medical Services would like to recognize the important contributions physician assistants (PA) make as valued members of a patient care team.
“Our country’s healthcare system is focused on increasing access to quality care, and PAs play a big part in that effort. Because PAs practice medicine in every specialty, every setting and every state, they can help bring care to millions of patients who need it,” said Marvin Smoot, West Holt Medical Services’ Interim Clinic Administrator.
The PA profession has grown 36 percent between 2009 and 2014. Studies have shown that when PAs are incorporated into healthcare teams the result is lower readmission rates for everything from postoperative care to cancer treatments.
During PA Week, West Holt Medical Services is proud that Amy Rentschler and Loretta Daniels are on their healthcare team and they celebrate their contributions to the organization and the health of the patients they serve.
