You are correct that Mission Health will be a new division within HCA Healthcare.  What that means is that certain local infrastructure (such as management, key support departments and so on) will remain local rather than being fully centralized.  This also means that our system will have continuity of existing leadership, services and name.  Additional details will be determined as Mission Health and HCA Healthcare continue our discussions toward a definitive agreement.
