What is the Ascension St. Vincent’s Physician Alliance

The Ascension St. Vincent’s Physician Alliance is an effort among physicians who practice in Ascension St. Vincent’s to become clinically integrated. Ascension St. Vincent's consists of five acute care hospitals (Ascension St. Vincent's Birmingham, Ascension St. Vincent's Blount, Ascension St. Vincent's Chilton, Ascension St. Vincent's East, Ascension St. Vincent's St. Clair) Ascension St. Vincent's One Nineteen Health and Wellness, Ascension St. Vincent's Trussville, and 100+ outpatient sites, and a home healthcare company. Comprised of over 900 physicians representing over 50 specialties and subspecialties, the Physician Alliance strives to:

• Improve the health and wellbeing of our community
• Provide person-centered care
• Control costs to create health care value
• Enhance caregiver engagement and satisfaction

This has placed a considerable cost burden on employers and workers, strained state and federal budgets, and created an intense focus on health spending and affordability. Much of health reform is geared toward slowing these escalating cost trends. Moreover, there is wide agreement among leaders of public health that the financial incentives for providing care must be more appropriately aligned. click to continue reading
