Halifax Health, HMA Renew Interest in Merger With Bert Fish Medical Center

Halifax Health in Port Orange, Fla., and Naples, Fla.-based Health Management Associates have filed letters of interest to merge with Bert Fish Medical Center in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., according to a Daytona Beach News-Journal report.

In 2010, the medical center merged with Florida Hospital in Orlando, part of Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based Adventist Health System, but a judge later invalidated the deal, ruling the meetings surrounding the merger violated the state's Sunshine Law. The Sunshine Law establishes a basic right of access to most meetings of boards, commissions and other governing bodies of state and local governmental agencies or authorities.

According to the report, Halifax Health and HMA were finalists during this botched merger in 2010.

Bert Fish began a new partnership search in May when it sought a new law firm to help in its search. According to the report, Bert Fish has issued a call for proposals, and its board recently extended the deadline for submitting proposals from Nov. 20 to Dec. 20.
