Mt. Carmel, OSU Sign Affiliation Agreement
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Two central Ohio healthcare giants are joining forces to increase value in the area's marketplace.
Mount Carmel Health System and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have agreed on an affiliation agreement aimed at lowering healthcare costs while increasing the quality of care available to the area's patients.
The agreement was announced in a media release, which stated several areas of improvement the organizations hope to address through the affiliation, including primary care accessibility, medical education, and the safety net available to under-served populations.
Mount Carmel Vice President Dr. Richard Streck believes the partnership will prove to be advantageous for the involved organizations, as well as the public.
"I think by combining our efforts and identifying ways to delivering higher quality patient care, the financial returns will follow," Streck said.
