    Mission Statement

    To support and promote collaboration to achieve clinical and financial integration within the Winchester Hospital and Provider Network to provide the highest quality care and value to the patients in the communities we so proudly serve. 

    The Winchester Physician Hospital Organization (Win PHO) was created January 1, 2015. The primary goal of the WinPHO is to support physicians and Winchester Hospital so they can deliver the best possible care to their patients in the communities we serve.

    The Winchester Hospital PHO is a joint venture between our hospital and physicians who practice in the community. The PHO acts as the single agent for managed care contracting, presenting a united front to insurers.

    This arrangement benefits hospitals and physicians because better reimbursement rates from insurance companies can be arranged due to their strength in numbers. Insurers benefit, too, because they can arrange for primary care services, specialty services, hospital services and more with a single contract.
