Zanesville, OH (Vocus) October 8, 2010
CareSource, a non-profit, public-sector managed care company, through a partnership with Quality Care Partners (QCP) offers the most comprehensive access to affordable health care within local communities through QCP's network that includes hospital providers - Genesis Healthcare System, Coshocton County Memorial Hospital, Southeastern Ohio Regional Medical Center - and the most comprehensive panel of physicians serving Muskingum, Morgan, Perry, Coshocton, Guernsey and Noble counties.
Those in Southeast Ohio no longer have to travel large distances to find the affordable health care they need. The partnership provides enhanced access to health care for CareSource members in Southeastern Ohio through increased member capacity primary care offices throughout six counties including two Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC's) in Muskingum and Morgan Counties and the addition of more than 100 specialist providers.
“Through this unique partnership, we’re offering CareSource members the opportunity to stay close to home and get the medical care they need,” said Pamela Morris, President and CEO, CareSource. “Now those in a six county area can receive care that is close to home instead of driving an hour or more to receive access to specialists.”
“Quality Care Partners is excited to have developed this partnership between local healthcare providers and CareSource. This allows the members of CareSource to access all types of specialty services in their community,” said Dan Sylvester, Executive Director of Quality Care Partners. “The hassle factor of driving to the larger markets for specialty care is eliminated in most cases with this relationship. Southeast Ohio hospitals and medical staffs offer an array of quality healthcare services. This is much more convenient for members of our communities than having to drive to access specialty care in Columbus.”
