The ACMF is a partnership between Alliance Community Hospital and area physicians that is aimed at retaining the top clinicians and medical services in our region. It will enable physicians to focus their attention on direct patient care, since daily business operations will be handled by the Foundation.
“Hospital/physician collaborations such as the ACMF have been formed in an effort to combat physician shortages brought on by skyrocketing malpractice insurance costs, plummeting reimbursement payments and increased cost for medical education throughout the U.S. in recent years,” said Dale Wells, MBA, CHCE and Senior VP of Finance/Operations at ACH.
ACMF began operations on January 1, 2009.
Wells noted that, with the face of healthcare changing rapidly, ACH is committed to this partnership with local physicians “in order to retain the high-level of clinical expertise at our facility and in our service area.”
“ACH’s partnership with area doctors is mutually beneficial for all involved and, most importantly, for our patients and the community at large,” he said.
