Metro Health, U of M reach hospital merger agreement
An agreement has been reached joining Wyoming’s Metro Health Corporation with University of Michigan Health System.
The two organizations signed a letter of intent to join together last June. That meant the hospitals could look over each other’s business operations and negotiate a deal potentially leading to a merger.
Now, a deal has been struck that will expand U of M’s reach into west Michigan.
It will introduce medical research and what it calls cutting-edge health care into the region.
Metro Health brings its network of nurses and doctors into the fold.
In a statement, the hospitals announced, “This deal is expected to be completed by year end, pending final regulatory approvals and completion of the closing process.”
