Overview

The Doctors Hospital Medical Staff Credentials Manual details various aspects of credentialing, including appointment and reappointment, requests for modifications, categories of medical staff and clinical privileges.

Application Process

The initial application process has been centralized by OhioHealth Group Credentialing Services. Completing one application is all that is necessary to apply to Riverside, Grant, Doctors or Grady Memorial. Please call 566-0010 to request an application. If you are already a member of an OhioHealth medical staff and you want to join another OhioHealth staff call 566-0010 and OHG will assist you. Privileging is specific to each entity. For questions about initial privileges at Doctors please call Judy Cates (614) 544-1018 or Joseph Weaver Jr., (614) 544 2236 in the Medical Staff Office.

Reappointment Schedule

Based on JCAHO standards, members of the Medical Staff are reappointed no later than every 24 months. This process has been centralized by OhioHealth Group Credentialing Services (OHGCS). Only one packet needs to be completed on behalf of Riverside Methodist Hospital, Grant Medical Center, and Doctors Hospital as well as affiliations. For more information about the reappointment process, please call Judy Cates (614) 544-1018 or Joseph Weaver Jr., (614) 544 2236 in the Medical Staff Office.
