OGH, BRMC want physicians to come “Home for the Holidays”

Posted on: 11/17/2016

Olean General Hospital and Bradford Regional Medical Center, member hospitals of Upper Allegheny Health System, are gearing up their “Home for the Holidays” physician referral program.

The hospitals are enlisting community members so that doctors may be encouraged to “come home” to the benefits of practicing in a small, welcoming community.

“Hospitals across the country are struggling to recruit physicians from an ever decreasing pool of candidates. These conditions make it even more difficult for small, rural hospitals such as ours to attract doctors,” said Timothy J. Finan, president and chief executive officer, Upper Allegheny Health System, OGH and BRMC.

Those who refer a physician to either OGH or BRMC are eligible to receive a bonus of up to $10,000, depending on specialty and current need.

Upper Allegheny Health System is the parent company of Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. An integration of two prominent community hospitals in Southwestern New York state and Northwestern Pennsylvania, Upper Allegheny Health System’s goal is the enhancement of each hospital’s mission of care and service to their respective communities with the common goal of improving care, enhancing clinical programs and providing best-in-class service for various health needs.
