LITCHFIELD, Minn. (January 22, 2020) – Meeker Memorial Hospital & Clinics (MMHC) and CentraCare have entered into a Collaboration and Services Agreement.
The agreement becomes effective February 1, 2020.
Officials say at the heart of this agreement is a desire by both organizations to collaborate with each other to deliver and lead effective, efficient, convenient and coordinated health care services throughout Meeker County.
A cornerstone of the agreement includes transitioning Carris Health – Litchfield Clinics to a provider-based clinic model allowing physicians, clinic services, and hospital to integrate the delivery of health care services under one operation.
The clinics will be operated by the hospital through a lease with Carris Health, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CentraCare.
