Lakeland Health Care

Physician Orientation


It is our pleasure to welcome you as a physician of Lakeland HealthCare. As a member of the hospital family, you play an important role in our service to the community.

Along with other members of our hospital staff, your job is to be a team member with us in caring for the sick - one of the most rewarding jobs around. You share in this vital service to patients, whether or not you deal directly with patient care, because everyone's job is aimed at giving the best we can to our patients.

Please remember that you not only selected us, but we selected you. We think you are the kind of person we need for our continued success. Your cooperation and enthusiasm is important to us. To help you understand our hospital family, we have prepared this Physician Orientation handbook. In it, you will find that Lakeland HealthCare offers a broad scope of services for the community. A big part of our efforts are focused on 5 Star Service. We want to be known for quality care and outstanding service. Our goal is to continually improve how we do that - how we are here for people when they need us most.

Again, welcome! All of us are sincerely interested in your happiness and success.
