Replacements have been found for trauma unit physicians who are leaving Northwest Texas Hospital. 

Today Northwest announced a letter of intent with Emcare Incorporated to hire twelve new physicians who will start May 13th.

"We will be bringing them in and looking at some opportunities as I said to improve the patient care and equality and just some things so the patient will continue to have improved quality service at Northwest," says Caytie Martin, NWTH Communications Director.

Emcare is a Dallas based emergency medical services corporation providing care in over forty states.

Northwest says with the new trauma team they will be able to increase the daily hours of provider coverage from 48 hours up to 68 hours. Twelve current physicians resigned at the end of February.
