Mercy and Via Christi Health are entering into a joint venture partnership to create a new primary care physician practice in Pittsburg, Kansas. The practice will serve patients in a new clinic facility to be constructed on the Via Christi Hospital campus in Pittsburg.
The shared vision of Mercy and Via Christi is to create a regional, clinically integrated system of care that improves access and quality. Pittsburg, like many rural communities, is underserved by primary care physicians, leading many residents to travel out of the area to receive basic care. Working together, Mercy and Via Christi will be able to better meet the challenge of attracting primary care physicians to the community while achieving our goals of expanded access to health services, improved care coordination for patients and lower health care costs, with the overall goal of improving both the patient experience and health outcomes.
Brand-new, primary care center, adjacent to the hospital, to open December 2017.
