NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Envision Healthcare, a leading national medical group, today announced that it is working with the State of Florida, Division of Emergency Management, to send additional clinicians to Florida to provide lifesaving care and support patients impacted by COVID-19. Teams consisting of registered nurses, certified registered nurse anesthetists and emergency physicians will deploy to a large South Florida health system and to hospitals in the Orange, Pinellas and Duval counties.
“Clinicians’ heroic and relentless efforts during these unprecedented times are inspiring,” said Jim Rechtin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Envision Healthcare. “Envision’s partnership with the Florida Division of Emergency Management will provide much needed relief to clinicians working tirelessly to care for patients when they need it most.”
“As COVID-19 cases spike throughout the country, our clinicians and support teams continue to answer the call to care for patients,” said Mansoor Khan, MD, MHA, Senior Vice President of Envision’s Envoy Program. “Our ENVOY team is often the first to deploy to provide care when and where it’s needed most. Our multispecialty team is experienced in responding to and helping communities recover after emergencies. We draw from our collective experience as more than 27,000 physicians and advanced practice providers to provide quality care and save lives.”
This team will join Envision’s approximately 6,000 clinicians based in Florida who have been working around the clock to care for patients. Hundreds of Envision clinicians have deployed through the ENVOY travel team to hard-hit areas across the nation, including New York, New Jersey and Arizona.
