Western Maryland hospitals form alliance

The Baltimore Sun, October 3, 2013
Three Western Maryland health systems said Tuesday they have signed a letter of intent to form an alliance as they prepare for changes in the way hospitals deliver care under health reform. The alliance formed by Frederick Regional Health System, Meritus Health and Western Maryland Health System will explore ways the hospitals can partner to better care for patients and find cost savings in ways such as combining management and clinical services. The systems have not yet formalized the affiliation and are not bound until final documents are approved by their boards. The health systems began discussions collaborating earlier this year and completed a feasibility study by Berkeley Research Group in June.
