Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, St. Joseph Health Plan to Affiliate

St. Joseph Health in Orange County, Calif., and Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach, Calif., have signed a letter of intent to form an affiliation.

According to the release, the organizations intend to form an integrated regional health system, including their respective hospitals, an expansive physician network and numerous outpatient and urgent care facilities in Orange County and High Desert, Calif. By affiliating, each organization hopes to fix fragmented systems of care, greatly improve access for the underserved and deliver on the goal of making the region one of the healthiest.

Specifically, the health system leaders have identified the following as part of their vision:

• Clinicians will work together to achieve better clinical outcomes, make care more efficient and improve the overall patient experience.
• Create quality-focused, coordinated programs that will address care for the poor and underserved and fill gaps that have widened under present day economic realities.
• Exhibit a focus on care extending beyond the acute hospital setting, including wellness, prevention programs, long-term care and palliation of suffering.
• Offer specialized health services that would otherwise require treatment outside the community.
• Develop opportunities for partnerships with other healthcare participants, both traditional and non-traditional.

Under the affiliation, Hoag and St. Joseph will retain their individual identities and faith affiliations.
