South Shore Medical Center seeks to re-establish ties with Boston Children’s Hospital

After leaving Newton, Mass.-based Atrius Health, South Shore Medical Center, located in Norwell, Mass., lost its clinical affiliation with Boston (Mass.) Children's Hospital. Now, the medical center is looking to get that affiliation back, according to the Boston Business Journal.

SSMC officials are filing a proposal with the state to affiliate with Boston Children's Hospital.

SSMC's sister hospital, South Shore Hospital, is affiliated with Boston Children's.

The proposed deal would allow SSMC patients to be treated at Boston Children's, and would also offer discounts to patients referred to South Shore Medical Center by Boston Children's, according to the article.

The deal has yet to be approved by the state's health policy commission.
