In the wake of Health Republic demise, new provider-owned health plan looks to expand network, lure customers
CareConnect, owned by the North Shore-LIJ Health System, offering comprehensive coverage at lower rates than competitors, is poised for deeper incursion into Suffolk County, especially eastern Suffolk, where PBMC is being merged into North Shore come January.
The state health commissioner gave final approval to PBMC joining the North Shore-LIJ health system, becoming its 21st hospital. The transaction will be completed by the end of the year.
North Shore’s plans for PBMC are unchanged by Eastern L.I. Hospital’s decision to partner with Stony Brook
Eastern Long Island Hospital’s decision last week to partner with Stony Brook University Hospital does not affect “in any way” North Shore-LIJ Health System’s plans for Peconic Bay Medical Center, according to North Shore’s chief communications officer.
A first look at what North Shore-LIJ, the 14th largest health system in the U.S. has planned for PBMC: Establishing a cardiac cath lab in Riverhead to serve the East End is its top priority.
Peconic Bay Medical Center's board of directors voted last night to join the North Shore-LIJ Health System's current network of 19 hospitals on Long Island, the two organizations announced in a press release issued this morning.
