PeaceHealth and Providence Health & Services signed a letter of intent Oct. 26 to jointly develop innovative ways to provide health and wellness services in communities they serve.
The first example of the work they plan on doing is the development of a health and wellness center, featuring rehab, fitness, primary care and other services on Padden Parkway in Vancouver, Wash. The center will increase local access to primary and specialty pediatric medical care, and offer a unique set of complementary services designed to improve well-being and restore patients to wholeness.
Providence and PeaceHealth will continue to work together to further define their collaborative efforts, and they plan to explore jointly providing community benefits, such as health screenings and education. Click here to read the press release. (Tim Pfarr)
