Our Experience in Clinical Contract Services

The two principals of Hospital Practice Consultants (HPC) have together more than 60 years experience in hospital–based practice feasibility assessment, creation and management. Robert Fielder, in his capacity as Founder of Physician Staffing Resources (now Physician Support Resources), created more than 70 independent emergency medicine and anesthesia practices. Ron Hellstern founded and managed a network of 17 hospital-affiliated urgent care facilities in Dallas-Fort Worth (Primacare Medical Centers), a 23-hospital regional emergency medicine contract management group (Metroplex Emergency Physician Associates) and a 500 provider multi-specialty group (MedicalEdge Healthcare Group) with practices in 17 specialties including emergency medicine, hospitalist and intensivist medicine, and radiology.
