Capital Health receives approval to take over New Jersey Hospital

Trenton, N.J.-based Capital Health has received approval to take over services from Trenton-based St. Francis Medical Center.

The two parties are planning for Dec. 21 completion of the transaction and transition of services. Following the transition, St. Francis will no longer function as an acute care hospital. However, the emergency room and some outpatient services will remain open, according to a Dec. 8 Capital news release.

The approval comes after a review by the New Jersey Department of Health of certificate of need applications submitted by Capital.

"St. Francis has done many great things for the Trenton community, but the current healthcare landscape has made it unsustainable. Without these key approvals, Trenton would have lost desperately needed health care services, including emergency services, behavioral health, and cardiac surgery. This would be devastating to the residents of Trenton and Central New Jersey," Capital Health President and CEO Al Maghazehe said in the release.
