Massachusetts hospitals file merger plan

Worcester, Mass.-based UMass Memorial Healthcare and Southbridge, Mass.-based Harrington HealthCare System filed paperwork Dec. 22 for Harrington to become part of the UMass Memorial system, according to the Worcester Business Journal

The two organizations have been in talks since January, the month the Harrington board voted to sign a letter of intent to pursue a deal with UMass Memorial. 

UMass Memorial and Harrington said the regulatory review process is expected to take up to four months. The deal will be reviewed by the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission and the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office.
