Chicago-based Vituity, a physican-owned healthcare company, has partnered with Ascension on 21 Indiana health care clinic locations. Vituity began providing emergency services at 12 locations this month, with nine more locations planning to start this summer.
Vituity says its new service contract expands its relationship of jointly caring for Ascension patients and marks the launch of emergency services in the state and the extension of its Indiana footprint.
“As one of Indiana’s largest health systems, Ascension St. Vincent brings emergency care close to home. Our emergency medicine and trauma teams make up a statewide network of experts that patients trust when it matters most. We are pleased to work alongside Vituity to shape the future of emergency medicine across the state,” said Terry Metzger, Ascension St. Vincent Chief Operating Officer.
Vituity has also partnered with Ascension at facilities in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland.
