Since 2011, Angel Medical Center has been in a management agreement with Mission Health and has now completed the process to become a full member hospital.
As a result of this conversion, AMC will extend its Mission Health membership benefits, building upon its existing advantages that include better volume-based pricing for supplies and services; participation in Mission Health's best-in-class quality improvement services, and inclusion in Mission Health's Great Places to Work and Practice initiative which is a national model that strives to create an outstanding work environment.
“When we began this journey nearly two years ago, our board wanted to partner with an organization that was as committed to Western North Carolina as we have been for 90 years,” said Jan Unger, chairman of Angel Medical Center's Board of Trustees. “Mission Health is an outstanding partner and healthcare provider. Our relationship has been exceptional for the hospital and most importantly, for our community.”
