Hospital Field Realignment

Hospitals and health systems are responding to the rapid changing landscape in health care by joining together to drive high-value and high-performing health care. While various forms of affiliation are being pursued, mergers and acquisitions are one of many effective means for making progress toward meeting the aims of value-based population health. This is a direct response to the changing needs of communities for more convenient care, continuous financial pressures to reduce costs and the ever present drive to improve quality for patients. America's hospitals and health systems continue to build a high-performing, patient-centered system that benefits us all.
