Many healthcare organizations have turned to mergers as a means of improving supply chain efficiencies and reducing costs, as the turbulent economy has created instability in the sector. According to the Kansas newspaper the Wichita Eagle, Via Christi Health recently announced that it would merge two of its divisions, which would affect 30 physicians who approved the merger on June 30.
