Duke LifePoint pursues acquisitions and shared ownership and governance of community hospitals that can uniquely benefit from Duke's patient safety and clinical quality expertise and LifePoint's operational and financial resources and expertise.
Innovation is a pillar of Duke LifePoint Healthcare. It was among the first successful collaborations between academic medical centers and investor-owned healthcare systems. Today, Duke LifePoint is nationally recognized and continues to develop innovative models for the delivery of quality care. As an example, the Duke LifePoint Quality Program has served as a catalyst for the National Quality Program that extends to all LifePoint Health facilities.
