The University of Pennsylvania Health System is teaming up with two Trinity Health hospitals to expand access to care and develop clinical programs in cancer care, cardiology and surgical services in Greater Philadelphia. Patients at Mercy and St. Mary are also expected to see improved access to tertiary and quaternary care, officials said in an announcement about the deal to create a new alliance. For Penn Medicine, the alliance offers a chance to extend more routine care closer to patients’ homes while retaining the opportunity to use Penn Medicine for the complex and specialty care, said Ralph W. Muller, CEO of the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
