Through its Centers of Excellence program, Walmart partners with health systems that have demonstrated appropriate, high-quality care and outcomes for defined episodes of care.

The program bundles payments for the costs of certain procedures, meaning the $514 billion retailer bypasses insurers and works directly with health systems.

To determine where to refer associates for defined episodes of care, Walmart starts by examining health systems — not hospitals or individual physicians. Lisa Woods, senior director of U.S. health care at Walmart, and her team gather massive amounts of publicly available data on health systems. They then distribute requests for information and conduct detailed on-site visits, which involve determining precisely which physicians affiliated with the health system do and don’t participate in the COE.

Below is a listing of the 16 health systems and campuses to which Walmart will refer patients for defined episodes of care as of May 20.
