Memorial Health System Partners With SIU Healthcare

Memorial Health System and Southern Illinois University HealthCare, both based in Springfield, Ill., have formed a new partnership focused on improving healthcare access, quality, safety and outcomes.

 

The Midwest Healthcare Alliance, a nonprofit limited liability corporation also based in Springfield, will leverage the strengths of both organizations, according to a news release. The alliance will be governed by a 10-member board, including five leaders each from Memorial and SIU HealthCare. Charles Callahan, PhD, senior vice president and chief quality officer for Memorial, and Eric Brown, MD, PhD, CMO of SIU HealthCare, will serve as co-executive directors of the alliance.

"This alliance will foster innovative new methods and partnerships for delivering care across our region in ways not possible today," Dr. Callahan said in a news release. "The alliance will bring together the best thinking in emerging areas, like population science, big data, Lean Six Sigma, high reliability safety systems, chronic disease management and patient activation, all focused on improving the health of the people and communities across central Illinois."
