Health Management efficiently operates each hospital, which enables capital expenditures and market development.
Shared Resources Widen the Scope of Health Care
Physicians and Patients Benefit from Expertise and Technology
At Health Management, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of patient-centered care to meet each community’s local health care needs. To deliver patient care with maximum quality and efficiency, we stay focused on investing in our physicians, technology, and a wide array of services. We provide our physicians with modern facilities and technology, ensuring that the communities we serve receive the best possible care.
We have a proven record of working with our hospitals and health systems to make sure they are able to meet this goal. For instance, in Arkansas, Sparks Regional Health System in Fort Smith, and Summit Medical Center, across the Arkansas River in Van Buren, have each benefited from being part of Health Management.
The proximity of the two hospitals makes it easy to share resources, which in many cases prevents having to re-invent the wheel. This relationship creates an atmosphere where physicians as well as patients can utilize both hospitals’ expertise and technology. This partnership better positions our hospitals to deliver the highest-quality care and services to more members of the community.
“One of the advantages of Health Management, since they’ve come to our community, has been the capital which has allowed us to add new technologies,” said Dr. Charles Jennings of Sparks, which now has new CT scanners and a new OR suite. Acquired by Health Management in 2009, Sparks now has access to the latest innovations to provide staff with the tools they need to improve diagnosis and treatment. Such technologies not only help to improve the quality of patient care, but also increase efficiency and control costs.
“Additionally, they’ve shown that they are committed to the community,” Dr. Jennings added, noting that Summit’s 24-year history with Health Management demonstrates its commitment to stay. The two centers are able to complement each other thanks to such strong support from Health Management.
