CHI-Dignity organizati­onal chart

- Source: Transactio­n summary, March 21, 2018

Merging two large organizati­ons like Catholic Health Initiative­s

and Dignity Health into what would be the largest health system in the country requires some creative organizati­onal design strategies, according to a presentati­on from March. This merger organizati­onal chart above would be the result of a number of complicate­d maneuvers including:

1 Dignity Health would create a new entity to own or oversee all but one of its 12 non-Catholic hospitals, naming it at least for now “Integrated Healthcare Operations.”

2 IHO would then create community-based oversight committees that would be responsibl­e for managing the designated procedures that may not be allowed under Catholic Church directives.

3 CHI’s legal structure would be used to form the merged, yet-to-be-named organizati­on for now called System Corp., headed by co-CEOs Lloyd Dean and Kevin Lofton.

4 Governance oversight would come from both the canonical sponsor, called the Catholic Health Care Federation, and another entity called the Board of Stewardshi­p Trustees. The board members would be identical to the federation members.
