Americore Health deal to purchase Sonoma West Medical Center collapses

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Americore Health will no longer acquire Sebastopol, Calif.-based Sonoma West Medical Center, according to the Ellwood City Ledger.

Dan Smith, a member of the board of directors for SWMC, told the Sonoma West Times and News March 10 Americore Health failed to provide the immediate $500,000 cash infusion it had promised as part of its plan to help the financially struggling medical center.

However, Americore Health CEO Grant White told the Ellwood City Ledger Mr. Smith's comments were "erroneous." He said in an email statement to the publication the hospital operator maintained three separate agreements with SWMC; none of them included the requirement Americore Health issue an initial capital payment.

Mr. White told the Ellwood City Ledger the deal with SWMC will have "zero impact" on Americore Health's pending acquisition of Ellwood (Pa.) City Hospital.
