Credentialing and Orientation

The Premier Health Centralized Verification Organization (CVO)

Thank you for your interest in gaining medical staff credentials to practice at Premier Health hospitals and medical facilities.

For your convenience, the Premier Health Centralized Verification Organization (CVO) enables you to apply for privileges at any or all Premier Health facilities with a single electronic application.

When you apply for privileges at more than one Premier facility, many of the items required in the primary source verification process will not be duplicated.

If you have questions about the credentialing process, please call the Premier Health CVO at (937) 208-3504(937) 208-3504 or (833) 229-7736 (833) 229-7736.

The Initial Application and Verification Process

Following is the three-step process for applying for privileges to practice with Premier Health:

Step 1: Application and Data Collection

Step 2: Primary Source Verification

Step 3: Approval and Enrollment

Please take time to thoroughly review the electronic application and supporting documentation that you will receive with it. With the application link you will receive Premier Health Medical Staff Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, and other related documents.

You can help ensure timely processing by fully completing your application and the supporting documentation. If your application is found to be incomplete, you will be notified and asked to provide the missing information.

When you submit your completed application, you will be directed to a link to pay the application fee.

Completion of the application, however, does not guarantee acceptance for membership or clinical privileges by any of the Premier Health facilities.

We look forward to receiving your application.


Premier Health recredentials practitioners every two years. Processing for reappointment begins about six months before your current privileges expire.

The CVO will perform necessary primary source verifications. The application information and the verification information are made available to the facilities and organizations where the physician or health care practitioner has membership and privileges.
