The yearly reappointment process begins in January. Reappointment forms are sent to all permanent medical staff members by the end of February. Each member of the Medical staff is expected to ensure that all the information contained in the form is current, and make any necessary changes/updates. Physicians, Midwives and Dentists must meet with their Department Head (or delegate) to discuss their reappointment and have the forms signed by the beginning of May. Reappointments are presented at the June MAC and Board meetings for recommendation and ratification. If a member of the medical staff fails to complete the reappointment process within the timeframe noted, they will be removed from the medical staff, and must complete the full application process.
