It is our pleasure to welcome you to Southeast Alabama Medical Center (SAMC). In the past nine years, SAMC has experienced unprecedented growth grown from a community hospital to a hospital system.
Our medical staff now includes more than 350 physicians, representing virtually every medical specialty, as well as about 900 nurses, which 90 percent are RNs. More than 90 percent of SAMC’s physicians are board-certified – compared to the national average of 60 percent.
At SAMC, we have increased employee, nurse and physician involvement in hospital initiatives to ensure quality and improve patient care. Examples include Care Coordination Huddles, a care team review of patients on a daily basis to ensure care is being delivered in an efficient and effective manner.
Our physicians, nurses and support staff are compassionate people who care about the individual needs of each patient. And our leadership and administrative teams work to ensure these employees get the support they need to do their jobs.
We share patient feedback with physicians, nurses and support staff, especially in the areas of patient safety and quality improvement. And we’re proud of our Quality Peer Review Committee, a multi-specialty group of physicians that reviews hospital processes regularly to improve patient care and safety.
We have improved quality – and patient experience – as we’ve seen in unsolicited comments from patients about the outstanding and compassionate care they receive from our physicians and staff.
We believe that by ensuring physician, nurse and employee involvement, we also improve satisfaction for these caregivers, which ultimately improves patient care, patient experience and patient satisfaction.
If you are a technician, nurse or physician looking for a new opportunity, we hope you will consider applying for a position with SAMC. We strive to be employee friendly, and work hard to make SAMC a great place to work.
Many times, it’s the little things that make a big difference. That’s why our Service Essentials are the foundation of our culture to ensure we provide our patients and visitors the best care possible. These include warmly and sincerely greeting our guests, anticipating the needs of our guests, and providing each guest with a pleasant goodbye.
