Medical Staff Services

At Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge

Welcome to Medical Staff Services at Carolinas HealthCare System, Blue Ridge, Inc. Medical Staff Services strives to provide credentialing services to the medical staff and allied health professionals in a professional and timely manner.

We have established a uniform application which collects information for clinical privileges which includes both the Initial Appointment and Reappointment process. Due to the time-sensitivity of this information and levels of approval, it is imperative that applications with all supporting documents be returned within the allotted timeframe to avoid potential delays in your scheduled start date. Once you have exceeded the allotted time, we will work with your onboarding Coordinator to identify a new start date which may interfere with previously established contractual expectations.

To ensure that you receive the needed support you will be assigned a personal Coordinator who will partner with you in document and data collection. Your Coordinator will also perform all the needed research on your behalf for both Initial Appointment and Reappointment. Overall, our efficient credentialing process occurs in three phases which include:

  • Phase I: Intake and Data Collection
  • Phase 2: Research and Primary Source Verification
  • Phase 3: Credentials Approval

Follow the Appropriate Links Below for Instructions to Complete the Credentialing Process:
