Offering exceptional care for your patients

Just as a family supports each other, it’s important for Mercy physicians to support Mercy services. One way to do that is by referring your patients to Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center–Harvard.

“A small hospital does not mean decreased quality. Our entire staff is second to none. Everyone here is committed to providing the best service, the best quality of health care, the best experience to all our patients,” says Shailesh Virani, MD, board certified family medicine physician at Mercyhealth Harvard South, and president of Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center–Harvard medical staff.

Since the hospital became part of Mercyhealth, it’s received numerous upgrades and added new services. Just a few of the perks that patients enjoy include:

  • A comfortable, home-like environment
  • Newly designed patient suites with spacious, private baths
  • Free Wi-Fi available for all
  • High nurse-to-patient ratio for quick and personal attention
  • Nurses know the patient by name
  • On-site physical rehabilitation
  • Overnight accommodations for family

One big advantage for referring physicians is an on-site surgeon, extremely familiar with all the services and capabilities of Mercy Harvard Hospital. “I am happy to assist any physician who brings a case to Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center–Harvard. I know the Harvard staff and what they do, and I am familiar with all of the equipment, rooms, etc. This type of benefit to physicians isn’t often available at large hospitals,” says Douglas Bryan, MD, board certified general and vascular surgeon at Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center–Harvard. Dr. Bryan sees patients at Mercyhealth Heart and Vascular Center–Harvard and Mercyhealth Woodstock and performs 99% of his Illinois surgical cases at Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center–Harvard.

Dr. Bryan’s colleague, Ronald Oconer, DO, board certified anesthesiologist, concurs: “We are a full-service hospital, not just an outpatient facility. When your patient is admitted, we keep you updated on their progress and discharge them back to you. We keep the patient’s family informed on their progress while they wait.”

Dr. Virani encourages Mercy colleagues to refer patients for care. “Our hospital is a hidden gem. My patients rave about the private, spacious rooms and personal care they receive. I invite you to stop in for a visit to see what we offer. Then tell your patients about the benefits of receiving care here. Talk to your colleagues and patients about the exceptional care we provide. Your referrals—whether through Epic or word of mouth—are a powerful way to spread the word about everything we have to offer.”
