Northwell Health, Western Connecticut Health Network ink collaboration agreement

"Leveraging their areas of expertise will enable us to sustain excellence and growth as the healthcare industry rapidly evolves. This exciting relationship with Northwell will help us to advance our mission quickly, efficiently and cost effectively."

The organizations' similar cultures were a deciding factor in forming the partnership, according to Northwell President and CEO Michael Dowling.

"This collaboration is beneficial for both organizations, which share many of the same attributes and qualities, including an open and transparent culture, and a focus on physician and employee engagement," Mr. Dowling said.
