About Us

A national leader in population-based healthcare

As a patient-centered integrated network of academic and community clinicians, researchers, hospitals and ambulatory facilities, we partner with physicians to relentlessly pursue a new model of value-based, high-quality, data-driven healthcare for everyone in the communities we serve. Combining the strengths of UT Southwestern Medical Center, Texas Health Resources and more than 2,500 community physicians, we offer the largest provider network in North Texas.

Top Performing Next Gen ACO in the U.S.

In early 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that Southwestern Health Resources (SWHR) saved more than $37 million in 2018. These generated savings place us at the top of all organizations participating in the CMS Next Generation Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Model. SWHR has saved more than $67 million since joining the Next Generation ACO Model in 2017.

Being ranked No. 1 in the nation for the second year in a row further demonstrates the success of the physician-driven strategies SWHR has designed to build a stronger system of care. More than achieving significant savings, we have greatly improved the quality of care delivered to patients.

Largest provider network in North Texas

More than 5,000 primary care and specialist physicians and other caregivers:

  • 1,800+ UT Southwestern faculty physicians
  • 600+ Texas Health Physicians Group physicians
  • 2,500+ clinically affiliated physicians (independent and community)
Covering patients across 16 counties

Approximately 700,000 members (commercial and Medicare Advantage) in Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Henderson, Hamilton, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell, Tarrant and Wise counties. 

Value-based approach equals network savings

Since 2017, we have kept the average annual increase in healthcare costs of our network to one-quarter of the regional average (risk-adjusted, all commercial plans).

According to several health plans, our accountable care organization provides care to the most complicated patient base in the state at competitive rates.

Total cost of care

As part of our total cost of care approach to healthcare, we look at all aspects of the delivery of care and not isolated unit costs. As a result, we have improved clinical efficiencies to provide the right care at the right place at the right time. 

Care N' Care health plan

Southwestern Health Resources is the parent organization of Care N' Care Insurance Co., a regional Medicare Advantage Plan that serves approximately 14,000 members in North Texas.
