RWJBarn­abas Health and Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal of Philadel­phia have pro­posed a strate­gic al­liance that would cre­ate an im­proved net­work of pe­di­atric care serv­ing cen­tral and north­ern New Jersey.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

Lead­ers say the deal would im­prove ac­cess, de­liv­ery, qual­ity and ef­fi­ciency of pe­di­atric health ser­vices and cre­ate the most com­pre­hen­sive pe­di­atric health net­work in the re­gion. No funds or own­er­ship will be ex­changed. The deal will unite West Orange, N.J.-based RWJBarn­abas Health’s three chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals with CHOP, which has 535 beds and was the na­tion’s first pe­di­atric hospi­tal. The sys­tem said a for­mal part­ner­ship agree­ment is ex­pected to be fi­nal­ized in the near fu­ture, but didn’t spec­ify when.
