Why Does Hospital Independence Matter?

The common goal of remaining indepedent and moving healthcare forward in our communities is at the heart of everything SHO does. An independent hospital is a vital part of a community. When decisions are made within the walls of an organization, employees and patients benefit. Independence also fosters more personal relationships with patients and their families, along with a better understanding of community needs.

SHO recognizes the importance of hospital independence and provides:

  • Economies of scale without mandates of a large system
  • Benefits of collective stability while allowing care to remain local and preserving deep-rooted ties to hospital communities
