Caravan Health recently announced the addition 103 community hospitals to its 15 new partner ACOs. Amongst the new cohort is Avera McKennen Hospital & University Health Center, the flagship of Avera Health System.

Avera is no stranger to Caravan – the health system has been a Caravan ACO partner since 2016. Avera’s two participating ACOs found early success under the Caravan model with both achieving savings since their start.
