Lancaster General Hospital (LGH) is one of seven hospital systems to form the AllSpire Health Partners. The alliance, which contains 25 total hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, will address quality, population health management, best practices and medical research in the Northeast region.
“This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us to partner with some of the mid Atlantic region’s finest healthcare systems to create value for the communities we serve by providing the highest quality and most effective and efficient healthcare services,” said Thomas E Beeman, President and CEO of LGH.
Together, the seven health systems have a service area of more than 6 million people and combined revenue of $10,500,000,000 – making AllSpire Health Partners the largest health care consortium in the country.
“As a Trustee, assuring that our community provides the highest quality and cost effective healthcare by partnerships like this is part of our obligation of stewardship,” said C Clair McCormick, chairman of the Board of Trustees of LGH.
The participating systems include:
- Atlantic Health System (Morristown, NJ)
- Hackensack University Health Network (Hackensack, NJ)
- Lancaster General Health (Lancaster, PA)
- Lehigh Valley Health Network (Allentown, PA)
- Meridian Health (Neptune, NJ)
- Reading Health System (Reading, PA)
- WellSpan Health (York, PA)
"This is the first step in a new chapter that will propel us to transform health care delivery," said Karen J. Kessler, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Atlantic Health System and the newly-created Board of Trustees of AllSpire Health Partners. "This consortium will produce seven cutting-edge health systems working in tandem, giving patients greater access to best-in-class health care services. This is the future of health care."
As the paradigm of health care delivery is currently evolving, the era of fee-for-service medicine is shifting to a value-based model of health care delivery. The new consortium hopes tol carry out joint activities in traditional areas of patient care services, research and education to enhance the value of health care that communities receive.
