UT South­west­ern Med­i­cal Cen­ter is form­ing a joint op­er­at­ing com­pany with Texas Health Re­sources.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The part­ner­ship will in­clude 27 hos­pi­tals through­out North Texas and will ex­pand clin­i­cal op­por­tu­ni­ties by al­low­ing the fa­cil­i­ties to tap into the aca­demic med­i­cal cen­ter’s ter­tiary- and qua­ter­nary-care re­sources. The two provider or­ga­ni­za­tions will be 50/50 part­ners in a new com­pany known as South­west­ern Health Re­sources. The deal comes amid a num­ber of sim­i­lar trans­ac­tions be­tween aca­demic med­i­cal cen­ters and deeper-pock­eted health sys­tems. In one of the more re­cent ex­am­ples, Ban­ner Health com­mit­ted close to $1 bil­lion to ac­quire the Univer­sity of Ari­zona Health Net­work in a deal that closed ear­lier this year.
