Concerning Hospital Admissions:
The physicians of Guilford Medical Associates (GMA), have provided hospital care to their patients for many years. With the changes in hospital practices and the advent of full-time hospitalist coverage in Greensboro, practice patterns have been and are continuing to change. Guilford Medical patients admitted for various specialty problems such as strokes, end stage kidney disease, and cancer related treatments are currently admitted by the Triad Hospitalist group. In January of 2013, GMA physicians Dr. Mark Perini and Dr. Ravi Avva began allowing the Triad Hospitalists to admit their patients who presented to the Emergency Room and needed medical admission. Since this has worked favorably for these GMA doctors and patients, the practice as a whole has now elected to utilize the hospitalists in this manner as well. It has been a difficult decision mostly driven by specialist’s practice patterns and cultural changes in the inpatient hospital setting.
Please understand that the physicians at GMA will always be available for in-hospital consultation. In addition, they will always be available for courtesy consultation. Please be assured that all patients of Guilford Medical Associates will continue to receive excellent care in all facets of their healthcare.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns at this time.
Thank you for your continued trust in our doctors at GMA.Download PDF
