New Partners in Care

Sum2013_Back2HRMCWe are proud to have Highlands Regional Medical Center in Prestonsburg and its regional clinics in Eastern Kentucky join Alliance Coal’s In-Network Plus group of providers. And I encourage Excel employees and families to take advantage of the care they provide.

I continue to talk with and evaluate hospitals and facilities as part of our effort to expand our network of In-Network Plus providers. You probably know In-Network Plus as the place where you can get 100% coverage for most services.

But I know that it’s much more than that. These are a special group of doctors and facilities that share our belief that that good medical care requires close coordination among everyone involved. These are the providers that work with our health team to ensure we’re doing all we can to help our patients get the right care.
