SSM Health to ac­quire sys­tem from the Sis­ters of St. Agnes

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Alex Kacik

SSM Health will ac­quire two Wis­con­sin-based sys­tems from the Con­gre­ga­tion of Sis­ters of St. Agnes, the Catholic-spon­sored providers an­nounced last week.

The sys­tems are Ag­ne­sian Health­Care and Mon­roe Clinic. St. Louis-based SSM Health owns St. Mary’s Hos­pi­tal in Madi­son and Dean Clinic and its hos­pi­tals in Bara­boo and Janesville. The newly ac­quired fa­cil­i­ties will likely carry the SSM Health brand.

Shifts in the Wis­con­sin payer and provider mar­kets com­bined with the chang­ing de­mo­graph­ics of the Con­gre­ga­tion of Sis­ters led to the move, ex­ec­u­tives said. Terms of the deal, which is ex­pected to take sev­eral months to re­view and is sub­ject to cus­tom­ary ap­provals, were not dis­closed.

Fond du Lac, Wis.-based Ag­ne­sian in­cludes the 175-bed St. Agnes Hos­pi­tal, Waupun Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal and Ripon Med­i­cal Cen­ter. The 58-bed Mon­roe (Wis.) Clinic also has 12 clinic lo­ca­tions, re­tail and ur­gent­care clin­ics, and a home care and hospice agency.

SSM Health, which in­cludes an in­te­grated net­work of 20 hos­pi­tals, has been steadily ex­pand­ing its Mid­west foot­print over the past sev­eral years.
