WASHINGTON - Adventist HealthCare and Howard University, which operates the Howard Faculty Practice Plan, have signed a two-year management services agreement in which Adventist HealthCare will support and manage all practice operations at the Faculty Practice Plan. The agreement begins April 1, 2023.
Adventist HealthCare will bring in a new leadership team over the next several months that will work closely with the Faculty Practice Plan, physicians and leaders at the University and hospital. The physicians and staff at the FPP will remain employees of Howard University.
The importance of a strong physician network to support the growing needs of the community is integral to our shared commitment to provide culturally sensitive, patient-centered health and wellness services to all, including high-risk and underserved communities.
The partnership will help create a stronger, deeper connection between Howard University Hospital, the Faculty Practice Plan, Adventist HealthCare and the communities we serve. Bringing together our traditions of caring, we look forward to expanding access to care throughout the Washington, D.C. region.
