Modern Healthcare - - Regional News -

In­dian River Med­i­cal Cen­ter and Martin Health Sys­tem are now both part of the Cleve­land Clinic health sys­tem. The moves are part of the clinic’s strat­egy to build a sys­tem in South­east Florida, stretch­ing from its main cam­pus in We­ston.

In Oc­to­ber, when the ac­qui­si­tions were ini­tially ap­proved, the clinic an­nounced it had com­mit­ted to in­vest­ing at least $250 mil­lion in In­dian River Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Vero Beach over the next decade.

Also in Oc­to­ber, the clinic an­nounced it planned to com­mit $500 mil­lion over five years into Martin Health Sys­tem, a three-hospi­tal sys­tem based in Stuart.

Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease, In­dian River Med­i­cal Cen­ter and Martin Health will “con­tinue all cur­rent op­er­a­tions, ser­vices and pro­grams and pa­tients will con­tinue to see their same physi­cians and providers. All pro­ce­dures and out­pa­tient ap­point­ments will pro­ceed as sched­uled.”
