ChristianaCare has joined AllSpire Health Partners, a regional collaborative think tank of leading health systems in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. ChristianaCare is the first Delaware health system to join AllSpire, alongside its founding members Atlantic Health, Hackensack Meridian Health, Lehigh Valley Health Network, Tower Health and WellSpan Health, in their quest to enhance clinical excellence, economic efficiency and innovative collaboration.
“At ChristianaCare, we are committed to delivering high-quality care that is affordable and accessible to everyone in the communities we serve,” said Janice E. Nevin, M.D., MPH, ChristianaCare president and CEO.
“AllSpire represents a unique set of peer-level partners who are aligned in this commitment and also share similar economic and demographic environments in our neighboring communities. We look forward to collaborating and learning with our AllSpire partners—for the Love of Health™.”
The state of the U.S. health care industry, specifically its urgent endeavor to provide the highest possible quality yet accessible and affordable services, drives a need for constant transformation and collaboration. The mission of AllSpire is to share and leverage the membership’s aggregate knowledge, skills, scale and scope to deliver on that mission for each respective community.
“ChristianaCare is the largest health system in Delaware, offering services in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware. It is a beacon of excellence nationally, and we are thrilled to have their CEO Dr. Janice Nevin and her team at the table with us as we navigate the challenges and capitalize on the opportunities that lie ahead,” said Robert C. Garrett, CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health and chair of the AllSpire Executive Committee.
AllSpire members know that well-established working relationships are critical in times of crisis. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the peer-to-peer board, committee and collaborative workgroup relationships served as a basis of trust and support while facing common challenges.
“ChristianaCare joining AllSpire Health Partners is a significant milestone for us all as it represents further validation of the value that collaboration among strong independent health systems can unlock,” said Paul J. Tirjan, president of AllSpire Health Partners and CEO of AllSpire Health GPO.
“We warmly welcome the infusion of fresh ideas and energy from ChristianaCare, while looking forward to sharing the accumulation of wisdom and resources from AllSpire to ChristianaCare and the communities it serves.”
The inclusion of ChristianaCare in AllSpire Health Partners became effective January 1, 2022.
ChristianaCare also is a founding member of eBrightHealth, a strategic partnership of Delaware hospitals working together to increase access to health care services and improve the quality and affordability of care for all Delawareans.
