At the August Hospital Commissioner meeting CEO Mike Glenn said that the two organizations are still working on a possible affiliation. He went on to say that the two organizations have reached consensus on a framework of an agreement. The agreement framework will allow for integration of both clinical and administrative functions.
Mr. Glenn wanted people in the audience to understand that the merger is quite experimental and “cutting edge”. Jefferson County is in the lead in trying to provide these services. More on this will be presented to the board in September.
