Acute Care Surgery

To improve upon our ability to provide high-quality, cost effective care to acute surgical patients, UNC REX Healthcare launched the Acute Care Surgery (ACS) program. Similar to a hospitalist model and staffed by North Carolina Surgery, the ACS program delivers dedicated, 24/7, on-site availability of a surgeon (also known as a surgicalist) for emergency surgery.

The ACS program results in many benefits for patients:

  • Shorter time to evaluation/consultation
  • Quicker time to the operating room (OR)
  • Shorter average length of stay and lower overall cost of treatment
  • Improved clinical outcomes
  • Increased patient and family satisfaction
