UPMC May Acquire Altoona Regional Health System

University of Pittsburgh (Pa.) Medical Center is expected to enter negotiations to acquire Altoona (Pa.) Regional Health System, according to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review report.

The move would expand UPMC's market further east. UPMC beat out Gesinger Health System in Danville, Pa., and insurer Highmark to move forward with negotiations.

"We are interested in a relationship that will enable Altoona Regional to further enhance its quality of care and breadth of medical services, while gaining new access to capital and outstanding technology, science, innovation and expertise," Altoona Regional CEO Jerry Murray said in a statement.
