Our facilities are nestled within culturally and linguistically diverse neighborhoods in urban, suburban and rural communities As a nonprofit health system, we are exempt from federal taxes under the Internal Revenue Code. We also are the sole shareholder of Texas Health Physicians Group1, a 5.01(a) physician organization.
To reduce financial risk and avoid tremendous capital outlays, we forge strategic affiliations to grow and increase our competitiveness. For example, we joined forces with Aetna® and created a health plan company to deliver more affordable, high-quality and better-coordinated care to employers in North Texas through Texas Health Aetna. We also affiliated with the UT Southwestern Medical Center® to create Southwestern Health Resources, a clinically integrated care network of more than 3,000 doctors, 31 hospital locations and more than 650 outpatient facilities and clinics.
