Our Model of Coordinated Regional Care - The Next Generation Healthcare System

Prospect has been growing its business geographically primarily by acquiring health systems and now has 20 hospitals and several inpatient facilities in 6 geographic markets in Southern California (Los Angeles, Orange County and the Inland Empire), Texas, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Our growth model is well poised to expand into other geographic markets. As a matter of strategy, Prospect has aligned the acquired hospitals with its employed and affiliated physicians through the development of IPAs in each existing and new market. Now there are developed IPAs in every major market--and IPAs will be developed as a lead component of its Coordinated Regional Care strategy in entering any new markets through hospital acquisition.

All of these activities are designed to move the company farther and faster toward the integrated coordinated regional care system designed to assume and manage both professional and institutional risk from payers. Prospect believes that this is the surest way to secure its place in the post-reform healthcare system.
