  • Forward With Vision

    Wellmont Health System officials have launched a process to evaluate strategic options for the organization's future, including the possibility of aligning with another health system. The Wellmont board of directors and leadership team will spend this year engaged in an exploratory process with healthcare experts to evaluate how Wellmont needs to evolve to thrive in the future.

    By proactively beginning this process, we are taking our future into our own hands and will create a stronger health system for our community.

  • Update on our strategic options from Wellmont's chairman

    7/30/14 - I am excited to share an update about where we are in charting the right path for Wellmont's future. The Wellmont Board of Directors met at length last night and made the decision to narrow the list of six potential health system partners to three, including a regional system and two significant health systems beyond our area, all of which are not-for-profit organizations.

    This is another important step in a deliberate process set in motion by our board more than a year ago. But there is still much work to do. The selection of a potential partner which can meet our high standards and discerning partnership criteria is not expected until this fall, at the earliest.

  • Guiding principles

    In consultation with national experts, a special committee of the Board has begun a process to assess strategic options for the organization's future. The guiding principles that will govern this assessment are:

    • A strong commitment to Wellmont's mission, vision, values and operating philosophy
    • Significant financial strength to advance medical, technological and organizational innovation and to develop new care models for the good of the patients and communities it serves
    • A contribution to long-term economic development, the advancement of healthcare services and employment opportunities in our region
    • A strong vision for the importance of philanthropy, good stewardship of donated funds and community benefit
    • Optimization of information and medical technology systems
