Exclusive: UCSF, John Muir Dramatically Expand, Rename Bay Area Health Network
UCSF Health and John Muir Health have dramatically expanded — and renamed — their year-old Bay Area accountable care network, adding seven new hospitals and three new medical groups to the enterprise. The hope is that the network will be competitive with giants like Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health. The network's new brand name — Canopy Health — is intended to reach out to the broad Bay Area community, network CEO Joel Criste told the Business Times Wednesday. (Rauber, 7/27)
