“When we experienced difficulties with patient flow in our Emergency Department, we engaged Dr. Twanmoh to analyze the situation and provide recommendations for improvement. We found Joe to be a highly experienced ED physician with a thorough understanding of hospital operations. Based on his analysis, nursing and physician resources were reallocated, ambulance diversions were substantially reduced, and a split-flow model of patient care was introduced. In addition, Joe was invaluable with space planning for our ED renovation and COVID-19 preparations. We’ve been very pleased with the results of this engagement and highly recommend Dr. Twanmoh and his team.”

After Re-engineering Emergency Department Patient Flow
It was my first excellent experience in the past 23 years living in the USA. I wish all the hospitals had the same system they have in this hospital.
