Bon Secours to merge with Ireland's largest private health system

Cincinnati-based Bon Secours Mercy Health signed a letter of intent to merge with Ireland's largest private healthcare provider, Bon Secours Health System in Dublin.

The health systems expect the merger will close by the end of the summer, pending required approvals and reviews. In the coming months, the health systems will work on finalizing their definitive merger agreement, completing merger plans and gaining necessary approvals.

"As consumers across the globe experience a dynamic and ever-changing healthcare marketplace, Bon Secours Mercy Health is committed to expanding its footprint to bring good help to more patients and communities," John M. Starcher Jr., president and CEO of Bon Secours Mercy Health, said in a prepared statement.

Combined, the health systems would have more than 60,000 employees. In Ireland, Bon Secours Health System treats more than 280,000 patients each year across five acute care hospitals. In the U.S., Bon Secours Mercy Health is among the 20 largest health systems, operating more than 1,000 sites of care across seven states: Ohio, Kentucky, New York, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida and Maryland.
