About Partners In Health Network

Mission Statement: The Members of Partners in Health Network, Inc. will meet the health care needs of our communities striving for quality care throughout the network by leveraging existing resources while working collaboratively to improve organizational efficiencies.

Partners in Health Network formed during meetings beginning in December 1994.

Administrators from 11 healthcare organizations geographically spread throughout the southern part of the state, joined together to begin discussing the concept of creating an integrated delivery network for Southern West Virginia. The impending emergence of managed care, and the gradual, but certain and necessary reformation of the healthcare system, led these executives to believe that the development of a vertically integrated delivery network would provide a forum for regional, strategic and population-based planning, community needs assessment, better problem solving, communication and access, and management of resources.
