Crozer-Keystone Health System Joins New Pennsylvania Alliance

Crozer-Keystone Health System, a five-hospital system based in Springfield, Pa., has joined a new Pennsylvania-based health alliance that was formed earlier this summer.

In July, three health systems — Abington (Pa.) Health and Aria Health and Einstein Healthcare Network, both based in Philadelphia — created a new initiative to focus on population health, care coordination, backend efficiencies and management of employee healthcare benefits.

Abington, Aria and Einstein created a limited liability company for the venture, with each investing an equal amount into the partnership. Crozer-Keystone will be a full, equal partner with the other three health systems, and each organization will retain independence. The initiative has not yet been named.

Fifteen hospitals and more than 4,600 physicians now encompass the alliance, which is similar to accountable care organizations.
