National advisor, facility management company aligns with new partners across Mid-Atlantic
Leawood, Kan. (Sept 27, 2017)—Following several months of exponential growth across the Mid-Atlantic region, NueHealth has announced the relocation of its regional office from Conshohocken, Pa. to the Devon area in Wayne, Pa. The new space provides a central location where NueHealth representatives, provider and payor partners, and strategic business allies can begin tangible execution of the company’s mission to transform healthcare delivery in the U.S. and, specifically, create a more sustainable system for elective surgical care.
“NueHealth has operated an incredibly successful hub-and-spoke model for a long time, but that just doesn’t work anymore,”explained Tom Eicke, NueHealth, Mid-Atlantic regional president. “This region right here—the Mid-Atlantic, including everything from below Virginia up to Connecticut and into the Ohio Valley—represents probably 40 percent of our current project pipeline, and it’s important that we have a real presence among our partners and be able to serve the bordering states where we’re developing new facilities and ambulatory networks.”
The NueHealth Mid-Atlantic regional office is a 4,000-square-foot space housing a large executive conference room, two smaller conference rooms, four private offices, collaborative work spaces, and several hotel offices to accommodate transient employees. An open floor concept includes glass interior walls, high-top tables with bar stools, and moveable six-foot-high whiteboard walls. Additionally, NueHealth maintains the right of first refusal on another 2,800 square feet should they choose to expand further next year.
Regarding why NueHealth has focused on this particular region, Eicke explained that, in addition to the area’s population density, it reflects the most critical industry changes tied to healthcare delivery and value-based payment reform. “There is a lot of consolidation among the health systems here and physicians are forming mega-groups to prepare for the next stages in healthcare, which will be rooted in managing the costs of care and shifting risk away from payors to providers and consumers,” he said. “So we’re partnering with the market’s major payors and offering specialty savings programs to consumers in effort to get people where they need to go.”
For over 20 years, NueHealth has focused heavily on joint venture partner relations with physicians and surgeons, but as the current evolution of healthcare continues they’ve shifted their focus to align those providers with payors and consumers. NueHealth CEO Steve Harmon opined: “Healthcare as we know it today is simply not sustainable and that is going to become very apparent to this entire industry. As that happens, our presence in places like the Mid-Atlantic will let people know that we’re here and we can help.”
NueHealth’s Mid-Atlantic regional office is located at 1 Deven Square, Suite 101, 724 W Lancaster Ave, Wayne, Pa., 19087. To learn more visit NueHealth.com.
NueHealth is a privately held, nationally trusted healthcare partner and gateway to value-based care. Since 1997, our leaders have been joint venturing with physician investors to develop and manage focused surgical facilities, helping to stabilize provider independence through wealth creation, ownership and greater market share. Acting as a minority partner, NueHealth has spearheaded the development of more than 120 facilities, including physician-owned surgery centers, surgical hospitals, and specialty centers, and designed each of them to promote efficiency and quality.
We currently serve nearly 10,000 physicians across 28 states and have aligned each of them to create an Independent Ambulatory System (IAS)—the anchor to a payor-led strategy that capitalizes on value-based reimbursement and delivers quality care and patient experiences in the most appropriate setting.
