They are redesigning how they deliver care to meet patients’ needs and to provide their patients and communities with more convenient, cost-effective and innovative services. Realignment becomes necessary to remain competitive in a rapidly changing environment.

This realignment 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.
