CONTINUING EDUCATION – Our Continuing Education Initiative provides informational presentations, seminars and summits designed to keep clinicians and other medical professionals up-to-date on various public and community health topics. These may include but are not limited to policy briefs and/or updates; statistical data on current epidemics; and diagnosis, treatment, and symptom management of various disease processes.
PROVIDER CAPACITY WORKGROUP – The Provider Capacity Workgroup includes clinicians from Barton Health, Marshall Medical Center, El Dorado Community Health Center, El Dorado Healthy and Human Services Agency and Shingle Springs Wellness Center. The workgroup meets monthly and provides clinical expertise and perspective to identify gaps in healthcare and support development of a system of care for vulnerable populations.
Marshall Medical Center is a nonprofit community healthcare provider located in the heart of the Sierra foothills. Its history stems back to 1956, when the community banded together to build a modern hospital for El Dorado County. Since opening its doors in 1959, Marshall has been proud to maintain its status as an independent hospital whose governance remains local. The mission is to improve the health of the community and offer health services of superior value and quality, centered on the goals and needs of its patients. Marshall strives to deliver service that exceeds its patients’ expectations.
Marshall is routinely recognized in the top tier of hospitals in California by independent consumer healthcare groups and it is always striving to improve. Marshall’s Emergency Department is a verified Level III Trauma Center and the Stroke Program is not only distinguished as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission but also earned a Gold–Plus designation from the American Heart/American Stroke Association. Marshall’s Birth Center was also designated by the World Health Organization and UNICEF as a Baby Friendly certified facility for breastfeeding advocacy. Marshall Medical Center includes Marshall Hospital, a fully accredited acute care facility with 111 beds located in Placerville; several outpatient facilities in Cameron Park, Placerville, El Dorado Hills and Georgetown; primary and specialty care clinics and a team of 1,500 employees providing quality healthcare services to residents of El Dorado County.
