23 Aug WHAT IMPACT WOULD A MERGER BETWEEN MISSION HEALTH AND HCA HEALTHCARE HAVE ON THE PROSPECTS OF THE NEW HOSPITAL FACILITY IN FRANKLIN? NEW HOSPITAL FACILITY IN FRANKLIN? WOULD MISSION HEALTH STILL HAVE CONTROL OVER NEW CONSTRUCTION UNDER THIS SORT OF PARTNERSHIP?
This proposed transaction is about preserving and expanding care. Importantly, although we are still early in the negotiation process and haven’t completed due diligence, HCA Healthcare has made initial commitments to ensuring that our capital projects in flight continue, including Angel Medical Center and the Mission Hospital for Advanced Medicine. If HCA Healthcare were to acquire Mission Health it would be responsible for constructing a new hospital facility in Franklin. Until that time, if ever, Mission Health remains responsible for the new facility. Our patients in Franklin can look forward to the same high-quality care, delivered by their trusted caregivers that they deserve and have come to expect.
