U-M Health System named among nation's top 100 most integrated health systems
The University of Michigan Health System was recently named in the top 100 most integrated health systems by a market analysis firm.
“We are very proud of this recognition,” said Ora Hirsch Pescovitz, M.D., U-M executive vice president for medical affairs and CEO of UMHS, in a statement. “Not only is it a testament to the strong integration of our Health System’s clinical, academic and administrative structure, but also to the advantages of being an integral part of the University of Michigan and close partner with other health sciences schools and colleges at Michigan."
More than 570 non-specialty local and regional health networks and systems are eligible for the IMS ranking; this is the first time that UMHS has actively sought ranking, according to UMHS.
The U-M Board of Regents last week gave UMHS the go-ahead to invest more than $107 million in expanding its clinical services in Wayne County with a 100,000 square foot building in Livonia.
The U-M Health System opened the new $754 million C.S. Mott Children's and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital in December in Ann Arbor.
