Roo Lan Health Care is excited to announce it was selected to become a preferred provider with Physicians of Southwest Washington (PSW). Beginning this month, residents of Thurston and Pierce County who have health plans from Sound Path, Humana, and Health Alliance can use their benefits at Roo Lan at in-network rates.
Roo Lan was first approached by PSW about becoming a preferred provider at the beginning of 2016. Roo Lan’s strong community roots and consistently high Medicare Star Rating aligned well with PSW’s goal of partnering with skilled nursing facilities focused on quality, value, and great patient care. The timing is fortuitous as Roo Lan recently opened a new short-term rehabilitation wing dedicated to caring for patients in needs of intense care and therapies prior to returning home.
“This partnership will allow us to offer PSW patients a safe and comfortable path home from the hospital at in-network rates.” Chris Kistner, Roo Lan Marketing & Sales Director. “It’s a very exciting development for us to work directly with PSW to better meet the needs of both providers and patients.
“PSW is delighted to count Roo Lan Health Care among its preferred skilled nursing facilities. Together, our organizations will be more successful in improving patient care and reducing the per capita cost of health care.” Melanie Matthews, CEO, Physicians of Southwest Washington.
