Slide notes:A hospital system consists of two or more hospitals or other health care facilities that are owned, leased, or managed by an organization such as a corporation. Oversight is provided by a single board of directors. Single hospitals can be part of a hospital system if they own or lease other health care facilities. Health care networks are groups of hospitals, physicians, other health care providers, insurers, and/or agencies that collaborate to provide many types of health care in a community. One example of a hospital system is the Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center, a nonprofit organization located in South Carolina. The system includes five major medical centers and other facilities. 24
