Waterloo, IA – According to the statement, after months of analysis and due diligence, Trinity Health and CommonSpirit determined a sole parent is the best path forward for MercyOne and for the communities it serves.
Officials said that Trinity Health will reprotedly bring unified strategies and operations to MercyOne’s care sites, including one set of system services.
MercyOne will transition to Trinity Health’s common platforms, including a single electronic health record, ultimately allowing patients to easily manage their care across all MercyOne services and facilities.
The result is a more convenient and consistent care experience for MercyOne’s communities.
The president and chief executive officer at Trinity Health, Mike Slubowski, released the following statement:
“True to our shared Catholic mission, our goal is to provide high-quality, compassionate care with the best patient/member experience possible. We will accomplish that goal through a holistic approach, with a range of health services and technologies that are fully connected and coordinated. This agreement creates a fully integrated MercyOne to care for more people in a unified way.”
Trinity Health and CommonSpirit will now plan for integration, complete regulatory filings, and take other steps necessary to finalize the transaction, which is expected to be completed summer 2022.
