THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO HAVE STATED CARE PARTNERS WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE HCA SALE. CAN YOU CONFIRM THIS? WHY/WHEN DID MMH SELL CARE PARTNERS TO HCA? WHY NO DISCUSSION AND NO PRESS? AND WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE FOUNDATION DOLLARS?

As we’ve stated previously in numerous settings, CarePartners is part of Mission Health.  All of Mission Health, including but not limited to CarePartners, would become part of HCA Healthcare if the sale of Mission Health to HCA Healthcare is consummated.  CarePartners, and other components of Mission Health will continue to operate under their current names.

By contrast, none of the existing Foundations within Mission Health, including but not limited to CarePartners Foundation, are part of this contemplated transaction.  Those foundations will remain as independent entities.
