About Us

Who We Are

Formed from two leading health systems in Michigan (Beaumont Health and Spectrum Health), BHSH System is a not-for-profit health system that provides care and coverage with an exceptional team of 64,000+ dedicated people—including more than 11,500 physicians and advanced practice providers and more than 15,000 nurses offering services in 22 hospitals, 300+ outpatient locations and several post-acute facilities—and Priority Health, a provider-sponsored health plan serving over 1.2 million members across the state of Michigan. Through experience, innovation and collaboration, we are building a system designed to meet the needs of the people we serve through care and coverage that is simple, affordable, equitable and exceptional.

One System, Four Divisions

We believe health care decisions are made best locally. That is why we have been intentional in creating a structure for our new system that will empower team members and leaders throughout the organization to make the best decisions for their local teams and communities, while ensuring unity and consistency at the system level.

Within the BHSH System are four divisions: BHSH Beaumont Health, BHSH Spectrum Health Lakeland, BHSH Spectrum Health West Michigan and Priority Health. Each division is led by a president and governed by a dedicated division board.
