Spectrum Health

For Michigan,‎ By Michigan™‎

The past year has caused many of us to think differently and explore new ideas around how our communities receive and access health care. To improve health in our communities across Michigan, we need to make health care easier to access and more affordable.

Together, Beaumont Health and Spectrum Health are exploring how we can create a new health system that is For Michigan, By Michigan.

Shared Goals

System Board members and leaders from Beaumont Health and Spectrum Health believe that creating a new system for the future will:

Improve health and health equity
Providing exceptional, equitable care and service to all patients and health plan members will always be at the center of the system’s work.
Enhance the consumer experience
Making the experience easier for patients and members will include investing in new digital technologies and providing services in more convenient ways such as virtual and in-home care.
Improve health care quality, value and outcomes
Creating a new health system, which includes the nation’s third-largest provider-sponsored health plan, Priority Health, will allow for the development of and investment in innovative solutions that improve health care and coverage for all Michiganders.
Make health care more affordable for the communities we serve
Bringing together the strengths of Spectrum Health and Beaumont Health will improve efficiency and deliver affordable, high-quality care and coverage across the state.
Ensure the voices of team members and physicians are heard
Gathering the input of physicians, nurses and other team members who are closest to patients will be critical to realizing the mission and vision of the new organization. The new organization will also foster a culture that attracts and retains top health professionals to live and work in Michigan.
