Wait—aren’t all of the doctors at the hospital employees of Salem Health?
No, most of them aren’t. More than half of the doctors providing care at Salem Hospital are independent. That means they have their own practices set up as separate businesses. They still have privileges to see patients at Salem Health facilities, but they aren’t Salem Health employees. (That’s also why you may get more than one bill when you have a hospital stay — one from the hospital and one from each independent provider you see.) If you see a Salem Health Medical Group provider, you will receive a bill from Salem Health Professional Services.
