Welcome to Penn State Health Care Partners

The Penn State Health Care Partners clinically integrated network is a collaboration between Penn State Health and St. Joseph Regional Health Network, and other community providers. Physicians and hospital leaders are working together to design and implement a more coordinated healthcare system for the populations we serve.

Our Clinically Integrated Network strives to:

  • Enhance the patient experience of care
  • Improve the health of our contracted populations of patients
  • Stabilize the rising cost of healthcare
