War Memorial Hospital Signs Agreement to Join MidMichigan Health

War Memorial Hospital Signs Agreement to Join MidMichigan Health

SAULT STE. MARIE, MICHIGAN   ~~  October 28, 2021  (LSNews)  War Memorial Hospital and MidMichigan Health have signed an agreement which would make War Memorial the eighth Medical Center in the MidMichigan Health system. War Memorial and MidMichigan leadership expect the affiliation to be completed in early 2022.

“This is a very exciting time for our organization. We are pleased to have reached this portion of the agreement and look forward to completing the final steps to become part of the MidMichigan Health family,” said David Jahn, FACHE, president and CEO, War Memorial Hospital. “MidMichigan is well-respected and shares our commitment to our community, employees, health care providers and volunteers. This partnership will allow us to continue our growth and offer greater services and advanced care for our patients.”

In April 2021, the War Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees gave approval to move into a nonbinding letter of intent with MidMichigan following months of evaluating proposals from various health systems. A letter of intent was signed and an extensive due-diligence process was recently completed.
“It has been a joy to work with David, the board and the leaders of War Memorial, throughout this journey and to this stage of a definitive agreement. They share the same focus of keeping the patient the center of all that we do,” said Diane Postler-Slattery, Ph.D., FACHE, president and CEO, MidMichigan Health. “We believe coming together will make our organizations stronger. More importantly, the communities we serve will benefit from our collaboration with enhanced services and the delivery of trusted, reliable and high-quality health care. 
“This agreement continues the positive progress that we have made at War Memorial Hospital.  Our affiliation with MidMichigan will provide even more opportunities for our hospital to grow and provide additional services to our community.  We are looking towards a bright future ahead,” concluded Jahn
