UMHS forms two innovative health organizations in Western Michigan

To help community hospitals and physicians stay independent and strong despite radical changes in health care, the U-M Health System has led the formation of two innovative organizations based in West Michigan: the Pennant Health Alliance and the Physician Organization of Michigan.

Pennant, which includes hospitals in Grand Rapids, Wyoming, Muskegon, and other communities, and POM, which includes physicians across the western part of the state, help independent health care providers adapt to changes in electronic health records, health care quality assessment and reimbursement. U-M doctors also help provide continuing medical education to help doctors stay up-to-date in their knowledge.
