About Metro Health PHO
Metro Health Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) began in 1995 as an equal partnership between Metro Health Hospital and Kent Health Care Physician Organization (KHCPO) and was the first organized PHO in West Michigan. By bringing providers together throughout the health care system and across wide geographic areas, the PHO works to better coordinate patient care.
The Metro Health PHO also works in collaboration with hospital quality improvement activities and expands them into the provider office setting. The PHO is governed by its own Board of Directors with physician leadership that encourages sharing of best practices, problem solving, process improvement and the belief that the patient is at the center of all health care.
