CHI-Dignity organizational chart
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.
