John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media , July 24, 2013

"Across the country, we have seen a wave of provider consolidation and integration. While Stratus is notable for the relatively large number of organizations it contains and its relatively loose nature, it is part of a greater trend of cooperation," Powell says.
