Delivering value and improving health

Partnership in performance

Your commitment to improvement is a springboard to our success. As we reach the next level in performance, we understand that targets that come easy for some may take considerable effort and require more change for others to achieve. LHP is here to be a bridge to higher performance while easing the steps to get you there.

Focused teams of subject matter experts who support Legacy's full care delivery network are essential partners to achieve our vision of improved outcomes, and high-value care that is affordable for all. Please take a moment to read more about how we recently aligned and expanded our team to bring new expertise in-house to support you.

Quality Corner: Our commitment to DEI and addressing health disparities

LHP’s new equity commitment statement and values in action are ready for your review. Please read more to understand how data will help us address health disparities and promote accountability for our efforts.
