Munroe Regional in Florida Weighs Lease Options With HMA, LifePoint

Ocala, Fla.-based Munroe Regional Medical Center is considering two 40-year lease agreements with Naples, Fla.-based Health Management Associates and Brentwood, Tenn.-based Duke LifePoint, both for-profit hospital chains.

Duke LifePoint, a joint venture between LifePoint Hospitals and Duke University Health System, offered $138.7 million to lease the 421-bed Munroe, with a $200 million commitment in facility upgrades. Health Management offered the same $200 million commitment, but as much as $63 million more than Duke LifePoint's lease offer.

Munroe officials are scheduled to make additional visits to hospitals in both systems this week as they consider the two offers.
