As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve and change, providers and
systems locally and across the country are continuously looking for new
opportunities and partnerships that will further enhance access, quality
service and coordination of care for patients and the community as a whole.
Today, Mercy and Henry County Hospital in Napoleon are pleased to announce
they have formally signed an affiliation agreement. With aligned missions
and shared philosophy on delivering high quality, compassionate care,
Mercy and Henry County Hospital are committed to working closer together
for the benefit of patients and their families in Napoleon and surrounding
“We are excited to expand our current partnership with Henry County
Hospital through this affiliation agreement,” said Chad Peter, president
and CEO, Mercy Western Market. “The partnership with Henry County
is synergistic and showcases the benefits of working together as healthcare
providers in the communities we serve. Additionally, for Mercy, this affiliation
naturally helps to further Mercy’s focus on working to improve patient
experience, increase access and quality of care across our market.”
As a result of the affiliation, Henry County Hospital joins Mercy’s
Clinically Integrated Network, which encompasses nearly 600 providers
throughout Northwest Ohio and increases healthcare access for patients
and their families, no matter where they live or work. Additionally, Mercy
and Henry County Hospital are exploring the creation of a joint medical
office building with the hopes of expanding healthcare services. Mercy
also plans to work with Henry County Hospital’s information technology
team to determine the feasibility of implementing EPIC, Mercy’s
electronic health record system.
While Henry County Hospital will remain an independent organization, both
organizations are committed to working together to define further opportunities
for collaboration moving forward.
“Mercy has been a partner of ours for many years and I’m excited
to take this next journey with them and work more closely on enhancing
access and care for our patients,” said Kim Bordenkircher, CEO,
Henry County Hospital.
