Two health systems. One vision.
Affiliation Agreement Signed
Johnson Memorial Medical Center (JMMC), the parent organization of Johnson Memorial Hospital, Evergreen Health Care Center and Home & Community Health Services; and Saint Francis Care, Inc., the parent organization of Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, have formally signed an affiliation agreement designed to maintain Johnson Memorial as an independent source of high-quality healthcare and expand its clinical services in North Central Connecticut.
Under terms of the agreement, JMMC is now a Saint Francis Care Partner, but both JMMC and Saint Francis will continue to be separately licensed institutions, each with separate Boards of Directors. Saint Francis Care will participate in JMMC's Board. The two hospitals will work together on clinical integration and review JMMC's opportunities for business development, growth and process improvement.
By accessing Saint Francis Care's resources - including various clinical services such as oncology, cardiology, behavioral health, pharmacy, and laboratory services - JMMC enhances its continuum of care and will have the opportunity to work with Saint Francis Care to realize substantial operational efficiencies.
