Business Description

Industry: Health Care Providers » Medical Care
Compare:CHE, FMS, DVA, FSNUY, BDUUF » details
Traded in other countries:LPO.Germany
LifePoint Hospitals, Inc., a Delaware corporation, acting through its subsidiaries, operates general acute care hospitals primarily in non-urban communities in the United States. At December 31, 2012, on a consolidated basis, the Company operated 56 hospital campuses in 19 states. The Company's hospitals typically provide the range of medical and surgical services commonly available in hospitals in non-urban markets. These services include general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics, emergency room care, radiology, oncology, diagnostic care, coronary care, rehabilitation services, pediatric services, and, in some of the Company's hospitals, specialized services such as open-heart surgery, skilled nursing, psychiatric care and neuro-surgery. In many markets, it also provides outpatient services such as same-day surgery, laboratory, x-ray, respiratory therapy, imaging, sports medicine and lithotripsy. The services provided at any specific hospital depend on factors such as community need for the service, whether physicians necessary to operate the service line safely are members of the medical staff of that hospital, whether the service might be economically viable, and any contractual or certificate of need restrictions that might exist. Like most hospitals located in non-urban markets, LifePoint Hospitals, Inc do not engage in extensive medical research and medical education programs. However, two of the Company's hospitals have an affiliation with medical schools, including the clinical rotation of medical students, and one of its hospitals owns and operates a school of health professions with a nursing program and a radiologic technology program. The Company maintains quality assurance programs to support and monitor quality of care standards and to meet accreditation and regulatory requirements. The Company also monitors patient care evaluations and other quality of care assessment activities on a regular basis.
