Print More

A group of doctors in Bend, Ore., known at the Physician Alliance is promising better health care through more cooperative relationships with each other and with local hospitals, Markian Hawryluk reports in the Bend Bulletin. Against a backdrop of historic divisiveness in the health-care community, the Alliance announced the new effort in concert with Cascade Healthcare Community, the parent company of St. Charles hospitals. The parties “have committed to working together to create an integrated health care delivery system that would enhance care, reduce costs and improve the health of the community,” Hawylruk reports. The parties pledge “trust, mutual respect, accountability and loyalty to the group as a whole.”
