My Hospital Essay

2287 words - 10 pages

Hello. I am the CEO/Manager of Twin Oaks Regional Medical Center in greater Columbus, Ohio. Twin Oaks is the 2nd largest hospital in Ohio. We are also ranked in the top 5% of the hospitals in the United States according to the U.S. Health Grades website. Twin Oaks has a level one trauma center that has 852 beds in all, to accommodate the patients that need our services. Being a level one trauma center we receive all of the most extensive cases and life threatening illnesses that our fellow hospitals can not accommodate. We have six beds set up in the emergency room to be able to perform emergency surgery at the bedside. This helps us give the patient who may not have the time to be prepped ...view middle of the document...

At Twin Oaks, we are committed to serving our community and ensuring that all of our state of the art programs are within everyone’s reach. We feature a vast array of programs, initiatives, and events that show our commitment to our community.
Columbus, Ohio is the 15th largest city in the United States, with a population averaging 822,000, so our hospital is built to accommodate anyone who needs us. Twin Oaks has three satellite offices in surrounding areas for the community to utilize. These satellite offices staff as a regular doctor’s office would. During flu season, we have a dedicated team of nurses who drive to individual’s houses to administer flu shots. This service is for anyone who is unable to make an appointment or leave the house for any reason. All these individuals have to do is call the appointment line, tell us where they live and which day and time works best, and we will send a nurse to them for their flu shot. This has become a popular service for our hospital.

As the CEO/Manager of Twin Oaks Regional Medical Center, I was able to convince the board to allow me to hire three physicians that I thought would be necessary to aid in the day to day operations of the medical center. These physicians would also be there to provide the highest quality of care and treatment to our patients. I have chosen to staff all these physicians in the emergency room, so we have a physician on 24-7 for the patients needs.

In the United States, Heart Disease is the number one killer of both men and women. Cardiovascular related diseases claim more lives than all the forms of cancer combined. In the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. Every 60 seconds, someone dies from a heart disease-related event (Heart Disease Facts). Therefore, the first physician specialist that I would hire is a cardiothoracic surgeon who is also certified in angioplasty. He would be stationed down in the emergency room in order to quickly attend to the patients that will be brought in with heart related problems. A cardiothoracic surgeon is a medical doctor who performs operations on the heart, lungs esophagus, and other organs in the chest. They are involved in the treatment of diseases affecting organs within the thorax region (the chest) (The Surgical Specialties, n.d.).

I would make sure my surgeon is also certified and knowledgeable in angioplasty. An angioplasty is when a doctor threads a thin tube through a blood vessel in the arm or groin up to the involved site in the artery. This tube has a tiny balloon on the end. When the tube is in place, the doctor inflates the balloon to push the plague outward against the wall of the artery. This widens the artery and restores blood flow (Angioplasty, n.d.).

The reason for hiring this specialist is that my hospital may see an increased number of patients coming into the emergency room with heart attacks and other heart-related problems that patients may need emergency surgery to...
