Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - — Shelby Livingston

Bos­ton-based in­te­grated sys­tem Part­ners HealthCare will ac­quire Care New Eng­land Health Sys­tem of Providence, R.I.

The two not-for-profit sys­tems last week said they have signed a let­ter of in­tent to ne­go­ti­ate a deal just a few months af­ter Care New Eng­land’s pro­posed merger with New Bed­ford, Mass.-based South­coast Health Sys­tem fell through.

The deal with Part­ners would in­clude Care New Eng­land-owned fa­cil­i­ties Kent Hos­pi­tal in War­wick, R.I.; Women & In­fants Hos­pi­tal of Rhode Is­land in Providence; VNA of Care New Eng­land in War­wick; But­ler Hos­pi­tal in Providence; and the Providence Cen­ter in sev­eral lo­ca­tions across the state.

Ne­go­ti­a­tions are just be­gin­ning and it could take two to three months be­fore a de­fin­i­tive agree­ment is reached, said Care New Eng­land Pres­i­dent Den­nis Keefe.
