About Archetype Health

Jointly developed and jointly led between Centra and physicians in the community, a clinically integrated network was created in order to form a seamless partnership to transform care for the patients of central and southside Virginia. Clinical integration is an effort among physicians in collaboration with a health system, to develop active and ongoing clinical initiatives focused on delivering high quality, performance, efficiency and value-based care to patients. This clinically integrated network, known as Archetype Health, LLC, is governed by a 15 member board of directors that includes 9 physician leaders, 2 Centra administrators, one community member, and 3 non-voting members.

Archetype Health was formed to collectively create processes and clinical initiatives that are designed to control costs, improve quality of care of the community and improve the patient experience. It is envisioned and encouraged that physicians and physician practice groups and other health systems will join Archetype Health in this bold, innovative initiative.

“To further meet the challenges of ever-changing healthcare, both Centra and Archetype Health have been in discussions to explore how physicians and the local health system can collaborate to provide seamless care to patients,” said Matthew Johnson, M.D., Executive Medical Director at Centra.

Archetype Health and the physicians associated with the venture will implement the best course of treatment for different types of illnesses and diseases. For example, Archetype Health will determine the highest quality and most effective treatment of diabetes that will then be shared across the network of physicians to ensure patients are receiving the care they need to treat this chronic condition.
