Provider RelationsCommunity Health Partners, the Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) in Collier County comprised of local physicians, hospitals and other ancillary medical providers who collectively make up a provider network. The physician component of the PHO is the Southwest Florida Physicians Association (SWFPA) an Independent Physician Association. Providers who meet eligibility criteria may apply for membership into the PHO network. Once the network is established, Community Health Partners represents the network in its entirety and establishes "managed care" contracts on behalf of the network with employer groups, insurance companies and other networks. Members of these various contracted groups then have access to the best network of physicians and hospitals Collier County has to offer. Once a contract is in place, the Community Health Partners’ Provider Relations Department will provide assistance and education to the providers who participate in the PHO network and the members of the community who are seeking medical services from them. The Provider Relations Department is your most direct link between our network providers and managed care companies.
