NCH Healthcare System, Naples, Fla., has become a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network.
The partnership allows its physicians to collaborate with those at the Mayo Clinic. It also allows patients to access Mayo Clinic expertise without having to travel far from home, a news release said.
NCH is the first health system in the Southeast region to join the network, which was launched last year, according to the release. Financial terms were not disclosed, but Mayo will not take an ownership stake in NCH.
