Midmichigan Health and the University of Michigan Health System Sign Agreement to Affiliate

MidMichigan Health and the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) solidified a partnership on June 21, 2013, when both health care organizations signed an agreement to affiliate. The partnership is intended to expand access, quality, and the level of care provided for patients who live in the 14-county region served by MidMichigan Health. It will ensure that patients receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time. The agreement follows an announcement of the intended affiliation made late last summer. MidMichigan and UMHS are already working together to provide expedited access to clinical specialists and treatments not available in the region and to deepen clinical collaboration, first in cancer and cardiovascular services, with other specialty areas to be phased in. Throughout the United States, health systems are seeking affiliations and alignment with other health systems and physician groups to prepare for new insurance payment models that require high quality care for large populations of people at an appropriate cost. The affiliation positions both organizations to succeed in this new environment. Throughout the region, patients of MidMichigan Health have indicated a strong preference for UMHS when care is not available locally. MidMichigan physicians have a history of working closely with UMHS specialists. The University of Michigan Health System is a national leader in advanced patient care, innovative research to improve human health and comprehensive education of physicians, health professionals and medical scientists. UMHS includes the U-M Hospitals & Health Centers, which attracts patients from every county in Michigan as well as from other states and nations. It also includes the U-M Medical School with its 1,700-physician Faculty Group Practice and numerous research laboratories. UMHS has earned many recognitions for quality & safety from U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health, the Leapfrog Group and beyond.

Spring Arbor University and University of Michigan Health System to Collaborate on Biomedical Research

Faculty and students at Spring Arbor University plan to collaborate with researchers and clinicians at the University of Michigan Brachial Plexus Program to conduct research to improve the lives of patients with a serious childhood disorder, Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy (NBPP). NBPP is a chronic, disabling condition that occurs during the perinatal period, resulting in paralysis and loss of sensation in the affected arm. The number of children impacted by this debilitating condition rivals cerebral palsy - one to four of every 1,000 children born in the United States. This anonymity results in a dearth of research as well as treatment options for children who are afflicted.
