Metro Health to join University of Michigan Health System

Metro Health, a single-hospital system in Wyoming, Mich., and University of Michigan have signed a letter of intent for Metro Health to join U-M Health System in Ann Arbor.

Through the partnership, Metro Health's hospital and its network of physicians, nurses and other providers will combine with U-M Health System.

Metro Health President Michael Fass expressed excitement about the deal. "It is no secret that U-M has some of the best providers in the state and country," he said. "By joining the 'leaders and best' we can build on our existing expertise and provide our patients and community with enhanced access to specialized healthcare services, scientific discovery and advanced technology."

With the letter of intent signed, both organizations will begin a period of due diligence.

Last year, Metro Health called off an affiliation with Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems — a deal that had been in the works since 2013. Through the transaction, CHS would have purchased an 80 percent equity interest in Metro Health's hospital.
