Atlantic Health, Hunterdon Healthcare in New Jersey Agree to Alliance

Atlantic Health System in Morristown, N.J., and Hunterdon Healthcare System in Flemington, N.J., announced an alliance to bring more specialized medical care to the central and western parts of New Jersey.

The organizations have been discussing the alliance for more than a year. The deal is not a merger as both organizations will continue to operate independently. Hunterdon Healthcare System includes Hunterdon Medical Center in Raritan Township, N.J., Hunterdon Regional Community Health in Flemington, Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation and Midjersey Health Corp. Atlantic Health System owns and operates Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center in Summit, N.J., Newton (N.J.) Medical Center and Goryeb Children's Hospital in Morristown.

Under the alliance, Atlantic Health and Hunterdon Healthcare will work together on a broad range of activities, such as population health initiatives; patient data management and connectivity; increased scope of clinical offerings at Hunterdon Healthcare; improved access for Hunterdon Healthcare's physicians and patients to specialized services and clinical trials with Atlantic Health System; and joint purchasing arrangements to reduce costs of equipment, supplies and pharmaceuticals, according to the release.
