Healthcare Sector Partnership
A strong healthcare industry is essential to the health and economic vitality of the region. The four hospitals/healthcare systems and multiple healthcare providers in the Region 9 geographic area may naturally compete for similar patient populations, but can collaborate to improve the sector for their respective communities. By bringing together a group of representatives to sit at a “single table”, identify multiple issues and/or priorities, we will develop solutions that improve the healthcare landscape. Many factors impact the delivery of high quality healthcare: an educated healthcare workforce; changing state funding priorities; fragmented systems of care that lead to duplication; and changing payment models. By working together, we can increase economies of scale and develop a stronger voice to drive change and improve health. The sector partnership provides an avenue to create change, a channel to come together to discuss urgent issues, and ensure that all agencies are informed of how they may be impacted.
