A team of hospitalists gets credit for helping Cameron Memorial Community Hospital increase service numbers.
The Angola-based hospital had a surge in patient totals and medical procedures over the past few years since the introduction of the hospitalist team and construction of a new facility.
An increase in business at the hospital wasn’t too surprising to spokeswoman Laura Lutterbeck. The astounding element was the size of the growth.

Startup provides doctors who specialize in hospital care

A local startup is providing small hospitals affordable access to doctors who specialize in treating hospital patients.
The service addresses a growing demand, the entrepreneurs say, because more medical school graduates who go into family medicine are choosing to treat patients during office hours only.
That creates a need for doctors who spend all day at hospitals, caring for patients suffering from congestive heart failure, pneumonia, and other serious illnesses.
