As the health care industry moves away from a fee-for-service model, and more toward a population health model, critical access hospitals, such as Northwest Medical Center, face a particularly unique set of challenges because of their size.

It also was noted, independent community hospitals across the nation are increasingly entering into integrative agreements.

Heartland Health and Mosaic Life Care President, Mark Laney, said Heartland and Northwest Medical Center have a long history of working side-by-side in providing health care in the region. Laney said the latest agreement will increase efficiencies to control health care costs, maintain high quality of care, and continue to provide the best experience possible to those they serve.

Chief Executive Officer of Northwest Medical Center, Jon Doolittle said, as the affordable care act progresses, rural health care facilities must seek new and innovative answers as demands increase and reimbursements decline.

Doolittle indicated Heartland and Northwest Medical Center are bringing together their strengths to ensure quality health care access and economic vitality in the area for future generations---and create a model rural areas nationwide will seek to emulate.
