This is an exciting time for Jones Memorial Hospital!
We announced today that we will be affiliating with UR Medicine in Rochester, New York, effective January 1, 2016. This is the culmination of a process several years in the making. In order to succeed in the changing healthcare environment we needed to partner with a larger organization. The medical model that UR Medicine presented was most closely aligned with our goals– enhancing the strong relationships our medical staff have with UR Medicine specialists and assuring that we cultivate and strengthen clinical services to benefit both organizations. UR Medicine is a leader in the delivery of the highest quality healthcare services in our region, with a reputation for clinical excellence that has been recognized both statewide and nationally.
In addition to the expansion of the specialty clinics already offered here – cardiology, neurology, endocrinology telemedicine, ENT and medical oncology – we will now have access to financial savings as well. As an affiliate of UR Medicine we look forward to enhanced leverage when negotiating with vendors and payers. We will evaluate each and every contract for potential savings and look forward to working with the University and our other rural partners to gain efficiencies and savings that have eluded us as a stand- alone small rural hospital. All of these opportunities will be key components of our success for achieving financial stability- and sustainability -in the years to come.
The constant change in healthcare will continue, as will our commitment to meet the health and wellness needs of our communities. As we move forward, the partnerships we have with other local providers and our affiliation with UR Medicine are crucial to assure smooth transitions for patients across the continuum of care. Working together, we will continue to provide the highest quality healthcare for generations to come.
