Sitka Hospital board approves LOI to combine operations with Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital

The Sitka (Alaska) Community Hospital board authorized a letter of intent to integrate operations with Sitka-based Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital, a member of the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium of hospitals, according to KCAW Radio.

 

The board approved the agreement at its weekly meeting Dec. 1.

 

Sitka Community Hospital CEO Rob Allen said the biggest benefit of aligning with the consortium is stability. He said a potential merger with Mt. Edgecumbe is just one option the hospital is considering. Sitka Community Hospital has been facing financial and operational challenges for years, according to the article.

 

Healthcare consulting firm ECG drafted the letter of intent agreement. The firm evaluated the hospital's situation over the course of several months and recommended a potential integration plan with the consortium in September.

 

The Sitka legislative assembly will decide whether the hospital can proceed with the transaction, according to the article.
