Walnut Creek, Calif.-based John Muir Health and UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco have expanded their ACO, which will allow it to better compete with California health giants like Sacramento-based Sutter Health and Oakland-based Kaiser Permanente, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Formed in 2015, John Muir and UCSF's Bay Area Accountable Care Network originally included five hospitals. The ACO recently expanded, adding seven more hospitals and three medical groups. With the addition of the new facilities, the ACO has been renamed Canopy Health.

The following California hospitals recently joined Canopy Health: San Ramon (Calif.) Regional Medical Center, Washington Hospital in Fremont, Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, Sonoma (Calif.) Valley Hospital, San Leandro (Calif.) Hospital, Alameda (Calif.) Hospital and Highland Hospital in Oakland.
