Benchmark Hospitalists and Intensivists Selected as the Provider of Hospitalist and Intensivist Services at Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway

Innovative Hospitalist and Intensivist Management Company Focuses on Improving Care Coordination, Patient Flow, Clinical Quality & Patient Satisfaction

(August 8, 2021 Los Angeles, CA) Benchmark Hospitalists and Intensivists, a premier provider of hospitalist and intensivist services, has contracted with two Palomar Health sites: Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway to provide both hospitalist and intensivist management and administrative services beginning August 8, 2021. In addition to the hospitalist and intensivist programs, our sister company Emergent Medical Associates will also begin providing ED services at these 2 locations.

Benchmark has served multiple hospitals in Southern California for decades, and this partnership marks Benchmark’s expansion into the San Diego community. Benchmark will provide Palomar Health a proprietary Eco-System approach that allows a global view of the patient care continuum to address the needs of Administration, the Medical Staff, Nursing, Ancillary Departments and, most importantly, the patient. In addition, Benchmark’s robust reporting platform will help to manage the overall operations and efficiencies of the programs. With the addition of both Hospitalist and Intensivist services, Benchmark will be able to streamline the management of the in-patient patient population through increased communication and collaboration, resulting in seamless transfers, improved outcomes and better overall patient experience.

“It is an honor to be selected by Palomar Medical Center Escondido and Palomar Medical Center Poway,” stated Dr. Mark Bell, President of Benchmark. “We look forward to bringing synergy to the hospital and patients with our best-in-class hospitalist and intensivist solutions.”
