EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On August 15, 2015, CEP America, one of the nation’s largest providers of acute care management solutions, began managing and staffing the emergency department (ED) at Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay, Ore. Bay Area Hospital is the third hospital in the state of Oregon to collaborate with CEP America.
“As the need to find a new group with which to partner, CEP America became the obvious choice,” said Paul Janke, Chief Executive Officer of Bay Area Hospital. “In CEP America, we found an organization that shares our commitment to delivering the highest quality care that our patients deserve.”
