Provider Orientation

Newport Hospital conducts an on-site, in-person orientation session of either a half day or full day for every new medical staff member. This session is custom designed for each individual participant to be a truly helpful and meaningful experience based on the level of engagement the provider will have with us. A thorough introduction to all necessary and pertinent clinical and non-clinical systems and processes is included at a reasonable pace for maximum comfort and retention. Our goal for this process is to have every provider be secure and confident in their interactions with Newport Hospital…right from the start.

Provider orientation sessions are scheduled and coordinated by Anne Cooney, provider liaison, and include:

  • Badge / Parking Pass / Photo
  • Introduction to Medical Staff Office, Health Information Services, and Dictation/Transcription Services
  • Hospital Tour
  • Clinical Information System Tutorial
  • Department-specific activities as needed
  • Personal introductions to senior management members, department directors, and hospital staff
