Kadlec Health System Announces Affiliation With Providence Health & Services

Richland, Wash.-based Kadlec Health System and Providence Health and Services have signed a final definitive agreement to affiliate.

Under the agreement, Kadlec will remain a separate 501(c)3 organization, and it will remain secular, according to a news release.

To allow Kadlec to remain secular and Providence to maintain its Catholic identity, Western HealthConnect, a non-religious organization, was created.

"Kadlec has long recognized that its ability to meet the community's needs in the changing healthcare environment would require an affiliation with a system with the expertise and financial resources to keep up with the needs of the region," said Rand Wortman, president and CEO of Kadlec, in the news release. "As we evaluated potential partners, Providence was clearly the best fit with its service-driven mission and efficient resources."
