Winston-Salem, NC, October 19, 2015 – Novant Health announced today a shared services agreement with Carteret Health Care in Morehead City, North Carolina, that is designed to lower health care costs and improve patient care.

“As the realities of health care reform settle in, progressive hospitals and health care organizations like Carteret Health Care are seeking new models of partnership that enable best practice sharing, while challenging historical perspectives to chart future health care delivery models,” said Denny DeNarvaez, president of Novant Health Shared Services.

Novant Health Shared Services aims to assist independent health care organizations through a wide range of affiliation models. With a customizable approach, Novant Health Shared Services partners with hospitals and the communities they serve to improve affordability, improve quality and ensure local access to care. By leveraging the scale and efficiencies of a national leader in the health care industry, these innovative partnerships deliver tangible value while preserving local market ownership and autonomy.

“This is just the beginning of what we anticipate to be a significant savings for our community hospital and ultimately our patients” said John Davis, Carteret Health Care Board of Directors President.

“As an independent, community and county owned hospital, we seek ways to improve health care for the patients we serve in eastern North Carolina,” said Dick Brvenik, president and CEO of Carteret Health Care. “This collaboration with Novant Health will continue to help Carteret Health Care cut costs by combining efforts with a larger system that has scale and greater purchasing power. We intend to leverage this relationship with Novant Health to make our organization a leader in delivering value to the consumer while remaining a self-sufficient, locally owned health care provider.”
