(CHARLOTTE, NC) – On April 16, 2020, Lisa Wood, MD with Mid-Atlantic Emergency Medical Associates (MEMA) was appointed Vice-Chair of Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center’s Credentials Committee. The Credentials Committee’s basic function is to vet all incoming healthcare providers to ensure sure they are properly credentialed prior to approval. This process includes peer reviews along with reviewing the ever-changing scope of practice for physicians applying for access to practice within the Novant facility.
Dr. Wood has been with MEMA for 18 years and served as Chair of the Emergency Medicine Peer Review Committee for 14 years. “I am looking forward to serving in this new role which feels like a natural transition after my time on the Peer Review Committee,” says Dr. Wood. “We are fortunate to have Novant continue to involve MEMA in an administrative capacity as our partnership continues to tie our service to the community together.”
