Catholic Health Partners announce HealthSpan expansionWritten by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Catholic Health Partners, the parent company to Mercy, is strengthening its Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) of Northwest Ohio, Physician Health Collaborative.
As part of proactive efforts to address anticipated changes in the national health care system, HealthSpan, Catholic Health Partners’ Cincinnati-based PPO, will expand its territory to Northwest Ohio.
HealthSpan will replace Physicians Health Collaborative PPO network. The transition should not affect members, customers, or partners as the current staff and office will be maintained under the HealthSpan umbrella.
“The biggest benefit to Northwest Ohio is our expertise. We have a track record of getting good discounts on behalf of our clients,” said Dawn Woods, director of marketing and public relations HealthSpan.
HealthSpan started in 1992 and serves more than 110,000 in southwest Ohio and parts of northern Kentucky.
HealthSpan is designed to cut medical costs for self-funded employers by providing direct relationships with providers.
In Toledo, Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Mercy St. Charles, Mercy St. Anne and Mercy Children’s Hospital will anchor the new PPO.
