1.) Distributions for June included payments for Stipends earned in May as well as partial payment for Stipends earned in June. The line labeled “June Call Stipends to be paid out subsequent to June 30, 2019” is the remaining amount owed for your June stipends. Small adjustments were made related to the May calculations for many which caused some confusion. Allison has reviewed the numbers thoroughly and they are accurate. With the carry over of different amounts for each physician it was a complicated process and she did an outstanding job. We are both cautiously optimistic that there will be sufficient funds in July for the August distribution to include all stipends through July 31. This is dependent on timely receipt of the support however.
2.) Coverage of TCCH continues to go very well. All of the people who are staffing it now continue to receive excellent reviews from surgeons, nurses and administrators. Currently Curby, Andy, Jesse, Kang, Paul, Shawn, Mark, Melissa, Harry and Chris have covered the hospital. Eric and Terry are scheduled in the next few months. For those interested in working at Twin you need to make an appointment with Loretta in Medical Staff to be oriented to the OR, Pyxis and Cerner there. Once that is done you can let me know and I will schedule you for a day and then a call shift. The schedule is fairly well set through September but there is need for coverage in October through December if you let me know your interest.
3.) The Board and anyone interested will start to review the stipends as they are now (listed below) with relatively short meetings periodically. The goal will be to have something to present for approval by the October Partnership Meeting so that it can be in place for the 2020 schedule. I will let all know when these meetings are occurring.
4.) If you haven’t responded to the invitation for the Beach Party in July, it would be appreciated if you would. Yes or No will help the caterer plan appropriately. Two potential recruits will be attending the party as well so it will be a good time to meet them and promote CAMA and SLO.
