Who We Are

Texas Health Aetna is the result of a partnership between Texas Health Resources and Aetna. This partnership combines Texas Health’s high quality, local providers and delivery systems with Aetna’s health plan experience, care management, analytical insights and health information technology. This partnership is the first and only joint venture between a national insurer and a provider in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

The new partnership will feature the Southwestern Health Resources network as its core, which includes more than 500 physicians in Texas Health’s employed physician group, Texas Health Physicians Group (THPG), Texas Health’s 69 outpatient facilities that include surgery centers, fitness centers, imaging centers and more than 250 other community access points. Its hospitals include 16 acute-care facilities, along with six short-stay, one transitional care and two rehabilitation hospitals.
