A few weeks ago, YCN talked to Jim Culhane, the President and CEO of the Lake Sunapee Region VNA, about their partnering with Connecticut Valley Home Care. Last week we talked to President and CEO of New London Hospital Bruce King about providing facilities and services to Valley Regional Hospital physicians in the new Newport Health Center. We asked Bruce if there is a pattern now in health care of providers working more collaboratively.
It looks like the health care business is responding to the need to keep cost down but continue to provide top quality care. In this day and age it is great that providers are really working together to become more efficient.
