St. Mary’s Health and Tri State Community Clinics Form Strategic Partnership
Tri State Community Clinics and St. Mary’s are pleased to announce we have joined together in a strategic partnership for the continued delivery of high-quality employer based clinics for businesses in Evansville and the surrounding areas.
Together, St. Mary’s Health and Tri State Community Clinics recognize it is our duty to continually work better and smarter for the individuals, families and businesses that make up our community and that the highest calling of healthcare is to keep healthy people healthy. This partnership is a natural next step for both organizations as our goals of wellness align and the environment of healthcare continues to advance toward support and encouragement of wellness and preventive care services.
St. Mary’s, which is part of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit health system, is committed to enhancing Tri State Community Clinic’s mission of improving the health of those we serve for the long-term benefit of our community. As a provider of on-site medical clinics and wellness programs that grow and sustain the highest levels of health for employers, employees and their families, this partnership will foster the overall well-being of our community by supporting area businesses that are committed to the health of their staff. In addition, this partnership will allow for both entities to come together for continued growth while supporting each other through shared resources and best practices.
“We couldn’t be happier to partner together as organizations that hold the same firm belief that the patient must come first. Tri State Community Clinics was founded on this principle, and it is certainly a concept that is woven within the Mission of St. Mary’s Health,” said Keith Jewell, President of St. Mary’s Health. “Together, we believe that by focusing on the patient-provider relationship and eliminating factors that limit access and add unnecessary costs, more patients are served and kept healthy.”
“As a Physician who has focused on population health management for the past decade the growing change in focus is long overdue. Over the past several years I have been amazed at the improved outcomes we have achieved both individually and with entire populations within a business,” said Dr. Chad Perkins, Chief Medical Officer of Tri State Community Clinics. “In addition, fostering successful patient experiences leads directly to lower long-term costs. St. Mary’s commitment to our employer based wellness centers enhances our mission to improve health of individuals and overall population health for the long-term benefit of our community.”
Together, we are very excited to build on the strong reputation and foundation of Tri State Community Clinics and grow this program to serve even more employers in our region. Our clients will see a seamless transition as we enter into this partnership. The hours of operation and contact information for our onsite clinics will remain the same, and scheduling for services will continue to take place through tscommunityclinics.com.
