We are excited about the ways our patients and communities will benefit from our proposed combination. Together, we will be able to create a connected care network that will increase access to even more services close to home.
We have much work to do in the weeks and months ahead; however, nothing changes today, including the services we provide. Patients should keep their appointments and continue to visit their providers, clinics and facilities as they always have.
It’s important to know nothing will change immediately. We have made this decision with our staff top of mind. By combining our organizations, we will have access to more resources that will ultimately allow us to better support you and the critical role you play in our patients’ lives through recruitment and retention efforts, infrastructure improvements and more.
Most importantly, there are no immediate changes on the horizon, and we do not expect any job loss as a result of the proposed combination. Meeting the current and future healthcare needs of our communities in the Thumb depends on maintaining, recruiting and advancing a dedicated and high-performing workforce and medical staff. We can’t achieve our shared goals without you.
