Session Description

Health systems are increasingly looking for novel acute care delivery mechanisms in deference to markets with ever-shrinking margins and ever-increasing competitive pressure. This presentation highlights how a community hospital faced these challenges head-on through a strategic partnership with a YMCA and a bold focus on community wellness and education. Fairfield Medical Center River Valley Campus’ unique spectrum of services aims to catalyze population health improvement by focusing on wellness and preventive health, within an efficient footprint. Participants will learn how this institution navigated creating a unique venue for outpatient care delivery and embraced unexpected opportunities for systemic benefits as the project vision evolved.
