October 15, 2020 – Southeastern Health and UNC Health have signed a non-binding Letter of Intent (LOI) for the two organizations to enter into a long-term comprehensive Management Services Agreement (MSA).
The proposed agreement will culminate in Southeastern Health becoming the 12th member of the UNC Health system. Southeastern Health intends to co-brand with UNC Health as UNC Health Southeastern.
The move will allow UNC Health more opportunities to recruit and retain additional highly-skilled physicians and other caregivers to the area as well as to maintain and grow the services Southeastern offers. Southeastern will benefit from the scale and expertise of UNC Health in areas such as clinical and organizational development initiatives, purchasing agreements, access to clinical and operational subject matter experts, and more, the organizations said in a press release.
Importantly, Southeastern will benefit from UNC Health’s existing population health management strategy and commitment to addressing health disparities with innovative, patient-centered solutions. “
The names of Southeastern Health’s locations will continue and will be co-branded to reflect the partnership with UNC Health.
The organizations hope to finalize the agreement later this year.
