A NewHealth Collaborative Partner

Mercy is also part of NewHealth Collaborative (NHC), Summa Health System's Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers who come together voluntarily to give coordinated, high-quality care to their patients. An ACO shifts the focus of medicine away from treating the sick to keeping patients healthy. It reduces cost by improving health outcomes (not by denying patient services) and preventing unnecessary utilization. An ACO is not an insurance company and does not pay claims or administer health benefits.

NHC supports the provision of care by its 250 primary care physicians, supported by 500 member and affiliate specialty care physicians.
