"The physicians are more satisfied, they feel like we’re acknowledging their contributions for call, and it was a partnership process, not top-down.”
Alan Watson, CEO of Maury Regional Health
When a group of surgeons from several specialties approached Maury Regional Health about adding call pay to their compensation package, hospital administrators knew they were in for a challenge.
“Any time a group approaches you about call pay, you start worrying about coverage for your patients,” Maury Regional Health CEO Alan Watson said.
While other hospitals have been handcuffed by the burden of call pay, Maury Regional remains on strong financial footing. Administrators said the compensation package has also become an asset in physician recruitment. With MaxWorth’s Call Pay Solution, Maury Regional was ultimately able to add call pay without compromising their budget, strengthening their relationships with physicians along the way. Watson said the longevity of the program is a testament to its effectiveness.
“This is our 10th year and it still works,” Watson said. “It’s absolutely a success.”
