Reappointment

The reappointment process starts and the following occurs five months prior to a physician's two-year anniversary:

1.  A packet is sent to the physician.

This packet includes:

  • Cover letter
  • Delineation of Privileges form
  • Confidentiality and Security Agreement form
  • Texas Standardized Credentialing Application
  • Addendum to Texas Standardized Credentialing Application w/third page for reappointment request
  • Statement of Continuing Education

Please note there is a non-refundable reappointment fee of $100.

The reappointment packets are required to be returned within 30 days. Failure to complete the reappointment process is considered a voluntary resignation.

Once the packet is returned to the Medical Staff Services Department, a final check of the documents for completeness and accuracy will take place.

2.  After all data elements have been verified and the reappointment process is complete, the physician's file is presented to designated committees and boards for recommendation and approval.
  Verification of certain practitioner data must be accomplished using specific criteria in order to be compliant with approved reappointment processes. The time varies depending on the complexity of the data and the number of data elements being verified and investigated.

 

For questions concerning a physician's status, please contact the Medical Staff Services Department at 281-274-7922
