Three major healthcare organizations —  LifePoint Health, MultiCare Health System and UW Medicine —  have partnered to create Embright, a new clinically integrated network in the Pacific Northwest.

The network will consist of 14 hospitals, more than 6,500 providers and 600 outpatient sites of care from Tacoma, Wash.-based MultiCare, Seattle-based UW Medicine and the Western Region of Brentwood, Tenn.-based LifePoint Health.

Embright, headquartered in Seattle, aims to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare.

The network is exploring opportunities in shared savings and shared risk models.
