With over 37 years of experience in Emergency Medicine, we have developed expertise in all areas of acute care. Solving problems in acute care for health systems is what we do.
Emergency Medicine ECS has a proven track record for providing quality emergency medical care. While taking care of nearly 10% of the emergency department patients in Michigan, we have developed a great deal of experience across the continuum of acute care.
Virtual Care Need follow-up care after your Emergency Department visit? We recommend you follow-up with your primary care provider after an ED visit, but if access is not available, we are here to help with non-emergent appointments. You can schedule a virtual visit with one of our emergency trained providers. To be eligible for a visit you must meet the following criteria: you were discharged from a Corewell Health (Spectrum Health) ED in the last 72-hours & you are at least 18 years-old.
Addiction Medicine ECS is dedicated to fighting the opioid epidemic with evidence-based, coordinated addiction care. Professional Treatment Solutions (PTS), a subsidiary of ECS, provides outpatient, acute inpatient hospital consultation, and emergency department-based treatment options to ensure patients can receive the care they need wherever they may present. PTS partners with Cherry Health to help those struggling with substance use disorders achieve recovery and reach their full potential.
Helix Scribe Solutions Allows our emergency department physicians to focus solely on patients and medicine. While the ED provider interacts with the patient, Helix scribes are in the background, utilizing Electronic Medical Records to document the interaction between the physician and patient. All scribes have successfully completed the GVSU Scribe Academy, completed and receive on-going clinical training with Chief and Senior Scribes, have a working knowledge of basic medical terminology, and are interested in healthcare professions or have compelling medical backgrounds. Senior Scribes have college degrees in health / science related fields.
Billing/Coding Medical Management Specialists (MMS) is the premier billing company and revenue management solution for physicians in Emergency Medicine, Urgent Care, Anesthesiology, Toxicology, Observation, Gastroenterology and more.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine Children requiring emergency care have distinct needs. That's why our Pediatric Emergency Physicians have specialized training and skills in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. At the only level 1 pediatric trauma center in West Michigan, Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, ECS treats more than 55,000 pediatric patients every year. We are dedicated to high quality and compassionate care of sick and injured children of all ages throughout the region.
Ultrasound We make it a priority to quickly and correctly ascertain an injury or medical problem using advanced ultrasound technology when possible. ECS physicians are specifically trained to use ultrasound technology to diagnose injuries where conventional methods of determination might take too long, require too much time to prepare, or introduce greater risk to the patient.
Observation Some emergency department visits require a slightly extended observation stay. These patients frequently require services beyond their initial emergency care to determine the need for extended hospital stays. ECS observation specialists provide high-quality and efficient care to patients to help determine a necessary inpatient stay and decrease unnecessary inpatient admissions.
Medical Toxicology When it comes to providing the specialized evaluation of care and poisoned emergency room patients, ECS provides uncompromising support and expertise. Our medical toxicologists are trained to handle the most difficult and life threatening poisonings, allergic reactions and overdoses, and provide expertise in diagnosing and managing toxicology emergencies.
Sedation Treating the pain and anxiety that accompanies a patient to the ER is critical to patient satisfaction and quality of care. ECS sedation specialists have received the highest-level training, and credentials necessary to safely provide sedation plans individualized to each patient, thus maximizing patient comfort while ensuring patient safety. We provide sedation services in the ED as well as inpatient and outpatient settings. Contact us if you need sedation services.
