DISCUSSING THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN MARQUETTE COUNTY.

CEOs GARY MULLER AND RICK AMENT.

Thanks to Marquette General Health Systems CEO Gary Muller and Bell Hospital CEO Rick Ament for joining us Friday morning.  The pair came by to discuss a new joint partnership between the two health care providers designed to align the two to better serve patients in Marquette County and prepare for possible changes on the national health care landscape.  The partnership will be known as Superior Health Partners.

According to a recent statement, the partnership is not a merger of the hospitals or a purchase of one by the other. Both hospitals are financially strong, will remain independent but strategically aligned.  By combining resources and personnel, Superior Health Partners will focus on enhancing health care services and medical treatments in Marquette County and the Upper Peninsula.  The partnership is intended to support and create healthcare jobs, improve the quality and efficiency of care, increase access to important medical treatments and services, as well as prepare for healthcare reform.
