What We Do
Deaconess is investing its expertise and resources in creating a healthcare delivery model that will fundamentally inspire continuity of care, refine efficiency and reduce costs in part by delivering care in community settings.
This approach is fundamental to our focus on meeting consumers desire for simplified care and independence, offering better patient outcomes in lower cost settings, capturing opportunities that require lower capital and are self-sustaining, and employing technology and collaboration to achieve more efficient, coordinated care.
