St. Louis medical center eyeing new employment system for ER docs

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 28, 2008
St. Anthony's Medical Center in St. Louis is proposing to no longer directly employ its emergency room physicians--a move that has left some of those doctors unhappy and looking for work elsewhere. St. Anthony's hopes the transition will help its ER doctors work more efficiently and cohesively, and ultimately shorten emergency room wait times for patients. The hospital expects a final plan will be in place in the next few months.
