2 Indy Health Care Providers Form Partnership
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Two Indianapolis health care providers are forming a partnership aimed at providing greater access to care to low-income patients.
The Indianapolis Star reports Wishard-Eskenazi Health and Community Health Network announced the partnership on Monday, saying it was neither a merger nor an acquisition. They said it the partnership will put them in better position for upcoming health reform.
Leaders of the two providers say they complement each other because many of Wishard's largest health centers and its hospital are downtown or on the city's westside and Community has more facilities on the eastside and its main hospital is in the city's northeast area. Community President Bryan Mills says the two also have little duplication in services.
