Few details on emergency room transitions
Sacramento Business Journal

A major transition is underway in emergency rooms at Mercy San Juan Medical Center and Methodist Hospital, but how it will shake out, nobody seems to know. CEP America, a national partnership of emergency medical physicians, will begin managing and staffing the two ERs on Saturday. A similar transition will occur at Mercy General Hospital on Jan. 1. The CEP expansion comes at the expense of rival firm Emergency Medicine Physicians, whose roots in the region go back more than 40 years.
