Novant Health announces new agreement with Eden hospital

Novant Health has announced a new shared services agreement with Morehead Memorial Hospital in Eden, N.C., effective immediately.

By combining forces, the organizations hope to “help reduce cost and improve patient care within our community,” according to R. Scott Barham, Morehead Memorial’s board chairman.

The agreement is the latest for Novant Health’s Shared Services division, launched in 2011. Others have been signed with Cape Fear Valley Health in Fayetteville, Memorial Health in Savannah, Liberty Regional Medical Center in Hinesville, Ga., and University Health Care System in Augusta, Ga.,

Each system will remain independent, retaining local ownership and management, but they will share best practices, information technology and purchasing power.

Novant, based in Winston-Salem, is a nonprofit system with 13 hospitals and about 350 medical clinics in the Carolinas, Virginia and Georgia.
