Bayhealth and Peninsula Regional Medical Center have announced a new partnership that aims to save both systems money and develop better practices.

Officials from both groups say the new group HealthPartners Delmarva is not a merger, but a collaboration between the two organizations.

“Creating the best experience for our patients will mean identifying and adopting best practices that focus on convenience, safety, time and cost efficiency,” said Terry Murphy, Bayhealth’s President and CEO. “By bringing together the experience, innovation and patient-centered values of our two health systems, we can be even more prepared for the new realities of healthcare.”

Dr. Peggy Naleppa, President and CEO of PRMC said, “Similar-minded health systems like Bayhealth and Peninsula Regional Health System, which have similar patient-first values, are establishing what the future of healthcare will look like on the Delmarva Peninsula. Together we have as our goal to provide patients greater access to best-in-class healthcare and to leverage for the benefit of our patients the combined intellectual assets of each health system.”

There are no plans for consolidation.
