CCH and Shields Health Care Group Collaborate to Offer MRI and CT, in addition to PET/CT and Radiation Therapy
Cape Cod Hospital today announced that it will expand its affiliation with Shields Health Care Group. Pending DPH approval, the two providers will now partner to offer Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT). This collaboration – the third and fourth joint venture agreement between Cape Cod Healthcare and Shields in the past two years – will provide increased flexibility and convenience for physicians and Cape Cod residents by combining the exceptional service and high-quality imaging of two of the region’s most well-respected healthcare organizations. The agreement will take effect July 2011.
Cape Cod Healthcare – parent company of both Cape Cod Hospital and Falmouth Hospital – and Shields first partnered in 2008 to offer PET/CT imaging. The affiliation expanded to include Radiation Therapy – the two organizations recently announced a new partnership to provide Radiation Oncology services at the new Clark Cancer Center on the campus of Falmouth Hospital. The partnerships are designed to increase cost-efficiency and drive quality in a changing healthcare landscape.
“Our focus has always been delivering the highest quality care to all of our patients every day,” said Michael Lauf, President and CEO, Cape Cod Healthcare. “This partnership creates more flexibility for our physicians and residents while maintaining our sharp focus on quality and service. It positions our organization for success going forward in the evolving health care landscape.”
“We have built our reputation on high-quality care and exceptional service,” added Tom Shields Jr., President of Shields Health Care Group. “We’re proud that Cape Cod Healthcare has chosen to partner with us for their imaging needs – they expect high-quality service for their patients and that’s exactly what Shields provides. With our expertise, we have a great foundation to build this collaboration and expand the exceptional care and service of Cape Cod Healthcare and Shields Health Care Group to even more patients across the region.”
