Partnership Structures

Partnership Structures

Partnership often leads to service expansion to meet the needs of the local community. We offer a variety of expansion opportunities through partnership that helps improve operational efficiencies and outcomes without expending extensive capital.

1. Hospital-in-hospital

A hospital-in-hospital (HiH) is a separate hospital that is located within the four walls of another hospital, or in one or more distinct buildings located on the same campus.

The HiH model helps mitigate the risk and challenges of patient transfers, while also reducing length of stay by providing advanced care under one roof from multiple units and specialties.

2. Specialized post-acute care unit

A hospital unit – whether it be an acute rehabilitation unit (ARU) or behavioral health unit (BHU) – allows for more refined clinical and operational processes to be conducted within a hospital.

The unit is equipped with specialized resources, such as:

    • 24/7 physician oversight
    • Registered nurses that specialize in treating complex patient needs
    • An interdisciplinary care team

Having a specialized unit helps maintain care continuity, keeps patients with the hospital’s care continuum and minimizes transfers.

3. Freestanding hospital

This method increases bed capacity, relieves strain on existing hospital resources, and allows patients to receive timely care in a hospital specifically designed to take on their unique needs.

Adding a freestanding specialty hospital can substantially help to expand community access to needed services.
