St. Joseph, Hoag Memo­rial get OK to form new sys­tem

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

St. Joseph Health and Hoag Memo­rial Hospi­tal Pres­by­te­rian have re­ceived fed­eral an­titrust clear­ance for their plan to form a new re­gional health sys­tem in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. The Fed­eral Trade Com­mis­sion gave early clear­ance to the af­fil­i­a­tion, in which nine-hospi­tal St. Joseph, Orange, would com­bine with two-cam­pus Hoag Memo­rial, New­port Beach. A news re­lease said each not-for-profit en­tity would re­tain its ex­ist­ing iden­tity and faith af­fil­i­a­tion—Catholic for St. Joseph and Pres­by­te­rian for Hoag. Deb­o­rah Proc­tor, pres­i­dent and CEO of St. Joseph Health, has said pre­vi­ously that the as-yet un­named new sys­tem would form its own board and fo­cus on co­or­di­nat­ing health­care in the re­gion. The new sys­tem will in­clude the or­ga­ni­za­tions’ hos­pi­tals, physi­cian net­works, and out­pa­tient and ur­gent-care cen­ters in Orange County and the High Desert re­gion.
