Physician Liaisons


The members of the South County Health (SCH) physician liaison team are available to help referring physicians navigate through the referral process, address specific issues or concerns, and help facilitate communication between referring physicians and SCH specialists.

Our knowledgeable team is happy to assist physicians with any problems that may arise and to help make the referral process smooth. We look forward to working with individual physicians and their staff to help them form and maintain meaningful relationships with South County Health.
