Three Rivers Health, a 60-bed facility serving St. Joseph and Kalamazoo counties in Michigan, and surrounding communities, offers a full complement of outpatient services along with specializations in orthopedics, emergency medicine, women’s health and rehabilitation services.

“Our thinking was to grow through careful alignment with partners of high integrity, who share our commitment to quality, exceptional experience and value,” said Dave Shannon, President/CEO of Three Rivers Health. “This really was a natural fit for us, and absolutely the best option for patients. As part of Beacon Health System, our communities will have even greater access to convenient, high-quality health care close to home.”

This partnership will allow more people throughout our region to have access to 1,100 Beacon physicians and providers. Beacon has a full array of clinical expertise in trauma, orthopedics, heart, vascular and cancer care. Beacon is also a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, connecting physicians with world-class Mayo Clinic experts.

“Throughout the process of coming together, it was evident that we shared common values, commitment to the communities we serve, and an appreciation for our important roles in delivering excellence in care,” says Kreg Gruber, CEO of Beacon Health System.

“Working together, Beacon and Three Rivers have the potential to positively impact the health of even more individuals. We look forward to working with our new colleagues in Three Rivers to provide exceptional care in neighborhoods throughout our region.”
