Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital, Natividad Medical Center Partnership Proposal Progresses

Two Monterey County, Calif., supervisors have been nominated to lead a committee that will craft a letter of intent to begin formal partnership negotiations between Natividad Medical Center and Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, both public-owned hospitals located in Salinas, Calif., according to a report from The Herald.

On Tuesday, the county board of supervisors agreed to appoint board members Simon Salinas and Fernando Armenta to an ad hoc committee that will complete the letter of intent to begin formal talks. It could take the committee about a month to finish the letter, according to the report.

The 172-bed Natividad Medical Center and 269-bed Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital, which are only four miles apart, initiated partnership discussions last August. At the time, hospital officials said talks were focused on how the two organizations could improve population health and healthcare delivery in the region. Late last year, they extended negotiations to affiliate through January.

Natividad and Salinas Valley Memorial executives have not yet disclosed any terms of a potential definitive agreement, although they have said they are looking at a range of strategic relationships.
