Outpatient Surgery Magazine wrote a story this month about surgeons who left hospitals to build competing surgery centers now returning to the hospitals as co-workers. St. Joseph's Mercy's Dr. Robert Olive was one of the surgeons interviewed for the story.
Olive was part of the Health First physicians who have joined St. Joseph's Mercy Health System. The former HealthPark Hospital is now utilized as Mercy's Outpatient Surgery Center and the physicians are now integrated with Mercy Clinic.
Olive says his "Life is much better" and credits Mercy with making his "Office more efficient."
