PinnacleHealth and UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) have signed a letter of intent to pursue an affiliation that would position PinnacleHealth to expand healthcare services, advance quality initiatives and continue to provide nationally recognized care in central Pennsylvania. An affiliation would offer a larger scope of healthcare choices for patients and give the hospital system the ability to recruit more top doctors.
PinnacleHealth has been exploring collaborative relationships with compatible organizations that can further its philosophy of delivering the right care per evidence-based standards, in the right place, at the right time and at the right price.
It was also announced today that Memorial Hospital of York in York, Lancaster Regional Medical Center in Lancaster, Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center in Lititz and Carlisle Regional Medical Center in Carlisle will be acquired by PinnacleHealth in a separate transaction, pending approval.
