Partners, Care New England: Merger still on track 3 months later

Three months after Boston-based Partners HealthCare signed a letter of intent to acquire Providence, R.I.-based Care New England Health System, the health systems claim the affiliation will still occur, according to WPRI-12 News.

In a joint statement earlier this week, the health systems said they are still hammering out the details of their affiliation as negotiations move into a fourth month.

"We continue to work closely on very thorough, detailed and important due diligence. While time consuming, this continues to allow for information sharing and a critical exchange of questions and answers that further this process," the organizations said. "The fact that this effort takes a careful approach, and therefore an extended period of time, should be of no surprise as both parties remain focused and committed to the previously announced affiliation plans."

A spokesperson for Care New England declined to speculate how much longer it would take the health systems to sign a definitive agreement in an email statement to WPRI-12 News.

Dennis D. Keefe, president and CEO of Care New England, previously said he hoped the organizations could complete the financial and legal due diligence necessary for a definitive agreement within two or three months of the acquisition announcement in April.
