ABSTRACT Regulatory and accrediting standards require hospitals to have a medical staff responsible for quality of care, patient safety, and clinician self-governance. PAs are on about 20% of hospital medical staffs in the United States and the number is growing.

Sondra M. DePalma practices at PinnacleHealth Cardiovascular Institute in Harrisburg, Pa., and is director of regulatory and professional practice for the American Academy of PAs in Alexandria, Va. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
