Here are four things to know.

1. MSM offers revenue cycle management, practice management, consultation and physician support services, according to a news release.

SJH already has various medical groups and affiliated physician networks through its statewide physician practice organization, St. Joseph Heritage Healthcare, the release states.

3. With the MSM acquisition, the company will join the SJH network, but MSM will keep its name and continue operating from Orange, according to SJH.

4.
