The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston Opens New Jennie Sealy Hospital and Announces Expansion Plans

The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has opened its new Jennie Sealy Hospital. UTMB doctors, nurses and volunteers moved nearly 200 patients into the new hospital on April 9. The hospital is located on UTMB's Galveston Campus. The $438 million facility features 310 patient rooms, including 60 dedicated ICU beds, a 28-bed day surgery unit and 20 operating suites. The new hospital takes advantage of the island location with most of the patient rooms having views of either Galveston Bay or the Gulf of Mexico. Several units will remain in the existing John Sealy Hospital including the Blocker Burn Unit, Mother and Baby and Labor and Delivery units. The John Sealy Hospital will undergo a major renovation increasing the size of patient rooms to accommodate the latest scientific and medical equipment. UTMB, which also has a hospital in Angleton, in June is scheduled to open another hospital on their League City Campus.

CVS Health Announces New Clinical Affiliations with University of Maryland Medical System, University of Texas Medical Branch and the University of Alabama at Birmingham Health System

CVS Health announced it has entered into new clinical affiliations with three leading academic medical centers to enhance access to high-quality, affordable health care services for patients. The collaborating medical centers include the University of Maryland Medical System, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham Health System. Through these clinical affiliations the patients served by these medical centers will continue to have access to clinical support, medication counseling, chronic disease monitoring and wellness programs at CVS/pharmacy stores and MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic division of CVS Health. In addition, CVS Health will provide critical prescription and visit information to the participating medical centers through the integration of secured electronic medical record (EMR) systems. The health care providers at the participating medical centers will receive data on interventions conducted by CVS pharmacists to improve medication adherence for their patients. The affiliation also encourages collaboration between the health care providers and MinuteClinic providers to improve coordination of care for patients seen at MinuteClinic locations. Physicians affiliated with the participating medical centers will collaborate with MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants to work closely on joint clinical programs and care coordination activities. If more comprehensive care is needed, patients can follow up with their primary care provider and have access to the services at the medical center as appropriate. For those patients who do not have regular access to health care, MinuteClinic provides assistance in finding a primary care physician and a greater opportunity for continuity of health care services. MinuteClinic, CVS/pharmacy and the participating medical centers will begin to work toward integrating EMR systems to streamline communication around all aspects of each individual patient's care. This integration will include the electronic sharing of messages and alerts from CVS/pharmacy to the medical centers' physicians regarding potential medication non-adherence issues. In addition, MinuteClinic will electronically share medical histories and visit summaries with the patient's primary care provider when they are a member of a participating health care provider. MinuteClinic will continue its standard practice of sending patient visit summaries to primary care providers who are not affiliated with one of these participating medical centers via fax or mail, typically within 24 hours, with patient consent. The new clinical affiliations announced here bring the total number of health system and health care provider affiliations for CVS Health and MinuteClinic to 44 major health systems and health care providers across the country.
