Physician engagement is fundamental to quality patient care. The Covenant Health Physician Engagement Strategy is made up of seven elements:

  • Medical Leadership
  • Workforce Planning
  • Credentialing/Privileging
  • Physician Compensation
  • Orientation/Continuing Medical Education

The strategy is reviewed on a regular basis in conjunction with feedback from medical staff, physician engagement survey results and leadership direction.

Covenant Health has launched and is conducting a comprehensive Physician Engagement survey NOVEMBER 1-30, 2016 as part of our commitment to build and engage our team.   

Gallup is conducting this survey on our behalf. Gallup was selected for their reputation and experience in conducting surveys with physicians and hospitals. Their systems also ensure the confidentiality of individual responses, the integrity of the process and effective reporting of the results.  Physician access IDs will be emailed directly to physicians. 

Your participation in this survey will help us identify how we can improve Covenant Health for both our physicians and those we serve. The results from this survey will be shared with all of our physicians following the survey and we will use them to guide our actions and decisions as we move forward.

Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. It is important that we hear from you.  Sharing your opinion and insights is a powerful way to help create a healing community that we can all be proud of.  Unique access codes will be distributed by email on November 1, 2016.
