Petition for Alliance Cancer Specialists Physician Staff Privileges to Continue
I am aware of the recent decision of Jefferson’s Board to severely limit or terminate the hospital privileges of the Alliance’s physicians to force the exclusive use of the services of the Hospital’s employed oncologists.
I am personally familiar with the excellent quality of care provided by Alliance’s physicians, and their previous contribution to building the Hospital’s oncology program prior to Jefferson’s purchase of the hospital. From a clinical and quality of care perspective, limiting or excluding Alliance physician’s staff privileges will negatively impact the Hospital’s ability to optimally care for Alliance’s cancer patients and other cancer patients who seek treatment at Jefferson Northeast.
I ask that this decision be overturned and that the physicians of the Alliance Oncology group continue to be allowed to provide high quality, compassionate care for cancer patients in the Jefferson Northeast.
The foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.
