Mission Health, MAHEC and a group of independent physicians have spearheaded the development of a new entity: Mission Health Partners (MHP). MHP is a patient-centric and physician-governed network of clinicians, hospitals and other providers working collaboratively in an evidence-based manner to improve patient care, reduce costs, improve patient experience and ultimately drive positive changes in the health of the residents of western North Carolina.
“We all know that our nation’s healthcare system is not achieving our collective goals: far too often, care is difficult to access, too costly, too provider-centric and focused only on disease,” said Ronald A. Paulus, MD, President and CEO of Mission Health. “Mission is committed to working collaboratively with patients, physicians and other providers to ensure that the residents of western North Carolina have access to the most advanced, comprehensive, high-quality and affordable care possible. The development of Mission Health Partners is a key milestone in this work and vital to fulfilling this important commitment to our region.”
