Hospitals Form Partnership

Eight north­west Ohio hos­pi­tals have formed a part­ner­ship to pool resources and save money.

Wood County Hos­pi­tal in Bowl­ing Green, Belle­vue Hos­pi­tal, Blan­chard Val­ley Health Sys­tem in Find­lay, Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tals and Well­ness Cen­ters of Bryan, Ful­ton County Health Cen­ter in Wauseon, Henry County Hos­pi­tal in Napoleon, Magruder Memo­r­ial Hos­pi­tal in Port Clin­ton and Fisher-Titus Med­ical Cen­ter have formed a new cor­po­ra­tion, Van­tage Health­care of Ohio LLC.

Each hos­pi­tal will keep its indi­vid­ual name but the group has pooled resources to cre­ate this new orga­ni­za­tion, which will look for ways to com­bine their pur­chas­ing power. All of the mem­bers are com­mu­nity hos­pi­tals that oper­ate inde­pen­dently in small com­mu­ni­ties. The new agree­ment will allow each hos­pi­tal to have the scale of some of the larger hos­pi­tal sys­tems when pur­chas­ing health-care prod­ucts for employ­ees or when con­tract­ing with ven­dors to pro­vide prod­ucts such as linen services.
