CES-managed emergency room services have partnered with UnityPoint Health-Methodist, and through process improvement initiatives, we have continued to raise its standard of service for patients. In Peoria, we know that patients have a choice when it comes to their medical care. Due to CES and our board-certified physicians, we have substantially improved efficiency in UnityPoint Health-Methodist emergency department.
Under CES management, there has been a 17% increase in emergency room patient volume. Generally, higher patient volumes means lower satisfaction, but that is not in the case of CES and UPH-M. In fact, patient satisfaction has been consistently in the 95th percentile of the CES peer group (ED’s seeing over 40,000 patients per year) nationwide. With CES and UnityPoint Health Methodist, we are changing the way patients and physicians think about emergency services in Peoria.
Effective as of January 1, 2011, CES has partnered with Galesburg Cottage Hospital. CES treats approximately 14,000 patients per year at Galesburg. We are proud to be partnered with a hospital that has completely renovated their ED to improve patient comfort and safety. Galesburg Cottage Hospital was reaffirmed as an emergency department approved for pediatrics and a Level 2 Trauma Center. Since partnering from CES, it has been an enormous success for both CES and Cottage!
