Managing Committee

Doylestown Healthcare Partnership Managing Committee

The Managing Committee oversees all DHP activities. There are 16 members – eight from Doylestown Health and eight from the Doylestown Health medical staff. Physician membership on the Managing Committee is divided equally among primary care and specialist physicians. Physician members are elected by their peers while the health system appoints its members.

DHP is supported by six standing committees, all co-chaired by physicians, engaged in a variety of activities such as the development of clinical protocols and information systems to better share patient data.

Al Ruenes, MD, co-chair of the Doylestown Healthcare Partnership Clinical Integration Committee, describes the “journey” to adapt or improve best practice guidelines, communication among network providers and the transition of care.
