New Partnership Between University of Utah Health and Mountain West Medical Center
The Office of Network Development and Telehealth are pleased to announce a unique partnership between the Department of Internal Medicine at University of Utah Health and Mountain West Medical Center (MWMC). This partnership is now live at MWMC and encompasses a comprehensive hospitalist service-line staffed by faculty members of the University of Utah Health Hospital Medicine Section.
Dr. Devin Horton is the Hospitalist Medical Director at MWMC, and he is leading efforts to develop care models to improve patient flow, quality and continuity from the ER to the floor to the outpatient setting. The Hospital Medicine group is excited to join the team at MWMC and is focused on the objectives to accomplish their mutually shared goals.
Thanks to the diligent effort and hard work of many teams at MWMC and UUH working together, this collaboration illustrates the great teamwork required to launch a new service. We appreciated the time and dedication that MWMC provided to ensure we have built a meaningful partnership that will positively impact the patients we serve and their loved ones.
The Department of Internal Medicine and the Division of General Internal Medicine look forward to working with MWMC to bring the highest level of care to all patients throughout the Mountain West, no matter where they live.
