Baptist Memorial Health Care, Mississippi Baptist to merge

Baptist Memorial Health Care, a 17-hospital system in Memphis, Tenn., and Jackson-based Mississippi Baptist Health Systems finalized their proposed merger agreement, creating one of the largest nonprofit healthcare systems in the nation.

Under the agreement, Baptist Memorial's Baptist OneCare EHR system, powered by Epic, will be installed in all Mississippi Baptist hospitals and clinics.

The health systems began discussing a potential affiliation in September 2016.

The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"This merger will have a significant impact on healthcare and our communities," said Jason Little, president and CEO of Baptist Memorial Health Care. "By combining our resources, we can invest more heavily in our team members, facilities and equipment, which will result in greater access to new technologies, best practices and medical specialists. Ultimately, this merger is about elevating and expanding the care we provide to our communities in Mississippi and beyond."
