CHS to Acquire Diagnostic Clinic of Longview

Community Health System's Longview (Texas) Regional Medical Center has announced plans to merge its operations with Diagnostic Clinic of Longview, a multispecialty clinic, according to a CHS news release.

Diagnostic Clinic of Longview includes 100 physicians and 30 mid-level providers with 18 locations. After the transaction is complete, the physicians will be employed by a separate entity affiliated with the health system, since Texas state law prohibits direct physician employment by a hospital or health system.

"The formation of this network of providers is a progressive strategy that will enhance clinical collaboration, create a more coordinated patient experience across the continuum of care, advance operational objectives for the hospital and the practice, and bring immense benefit to the entire community," said Wayne T. Smith, chairman, president and chief executive officer of CHS in a statement. 

The transaction is expected to close in the next few months, according to the release.
