In 2023, under Dr. Halasyamani’s leadership, Endeavor Health developed a system-wide improvement structure that engaged subject matter experts across the system and resulted in improvement in key clinical, safety and experience metrics.

Through system-wide implementation of the Vizient Clinical Database, the hospitals within Endeavor Health have advanced their performance nationally. Dr. Halasyamani’s leadership has led to six of nine Endeavor Health hospitals earning the coveted five-star (highest) rating from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, recognizing the high-quality care provided by clinical teams within Endeavor Health.

This positive track record has helped to prepare the organization to advance its value-based care strategy with innovative external partnerships. In addition, bringing the individual Independent Physician Associations across the system into a single Clinically Integrated Network, Endeavor Health is poised to manage more than 400,000 value-based lives across a range of risk-based arrangements.
