GLENDALE, Calif., Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed") (OTCQB-AMEH), a leading provider of hospitalist, critical care, ACO and multi-disciplinary care management services in Central and Southern California, today announced that one of its affiliated medical groups signed a service agreement with California Hospital Medical Center to provide comprehensive hospitalist services for the hospital.

Under the terms of the agreement, ApolloMed will provide two daytime ( 7am-7pm) hospitalists and one nocturnist ( 7pm-7am).   The hospitalists will also respond to all Rapid Response and Code Blue calls and provide internal medicine consultations on trauma patients.  ApolloMed will also work with the hospital administration to optimize lengths of stay, reduce Medi-Cal denial rates, improve documentation and to increase hospital throughput.

Founded in 1887, California Hospital Medical Center (CHMC), a Dignity Health facility, is a 316-bed acute care hospital that provides services for the dynamic community of Downtown Los Angeles and its surrounding neighborhoods.  The J. Thomas McCarthy Center for Emergency Services at CHMC is the only full service, 24-hour emergency department in Downtown Los Angeles and one of the few trauma centers in Los Angeles County, complete with eight surgical intensive care suites dedicated to trauma patients.

"We are very excited to have been selected as the new hospitalist group at CHMC," stated Warren Hosseinion, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. "We look forward to working with the medical staff, nursing staff and hospital administration to enhance patient care and efficiencies."

"Honoring our commitment to high-quality patient care sometimes requires that we partner with other organizations," stated Jerry Clute, President and Chief Executive Officer of CHMC.  "ApolloMed is a known leader in hospitalist services and other areas of healthcare management.  We look forward to working with Dr. Hosseinion and his team to meet the needs of our patients."
