Northeast hospitals establish strategic partnership: 5 things to know

Brattleboro (Vt.) Memorial Hospital, Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene, based in Keene, N.H., and Lebanon, N.H.-based Dartmouth-Hitchcock health system, have formed a strategic partnership aimed at delivering high-quality, value-based healthcare to the region.

Here are five things to know about the partnership.

1. The partnership builds on a history of collaborative initiatives among the three organizations in the areas of oncology, radiology and emergency medicine.

2. The new partnership will focus on expanding collaborative opportunities in both administrative and clinical services.

3. The partnership establishes a joint management committee made up of senior management and board members from each healthcare provider, and reflects no changes in the leadership, management or ownership of any of the partner entities.

4. The committee will oversee a portfolio of collaboration initiatives and make recommendations in regard to the operationalizing of the collaboration to the partners' respective boards.

5. BMH President and CEO Steven R. Gordon expressed enthusiasm about the partnership. "We already have a successful track record of collaborating on a number of clinical initiatives and look forward to building on those successes. We have complementary clinical services and share a common culture built on exceptional patient care, so we're well-positioned to work together as primary strategic collaborators for improving the access, value and quality of care in our region," he said in a prepared statement.
