Dr. Hester's Affiliated Hospitals


How Doctors Become Affiliated With a Hospital

Doctors must apply and be granted permission to admit patients into a hospital. The hospital decides if they are interested in a doctor’s experience, specialty, or expertise, and then evaluates the doctor’s history around competence. A doctor may be denied admitting privileges if they do not meet a hospital’s standards. 

Doctors can have courtesy privileges allowing them to admit just a few patients each year; full privileges allowing many patients; or privileges to only perform certain procedures or surgeries. 

Why Researching Your Doctor’s Hospital Is Important

Why Researching Your Doctor’s Hospital Is Important

Your doctor can only treat you at a hospital where he or she has admitting privileges. See how all hospitals are not alike and how your risk of complications or death can be lower at one area hospital than another. Whether your doctor treats patients at one or more hospitals, you will want to compare the quality ratings of each before selecting one. If your doctor’s hospital falls short in quality, you may want to find a doctor who treats patients at your preferred hospital.
