Munson Healthcare Announces Intention to Buy Mercy Hospital in Cadillac and Grayling

This morning, Traverse City based Munson healthcare, and Livonia-based Trinity Health, announced that Munson intends on buying Mercy Hospital in Cadillac and Grayling.

Munson has had a number of different relationships with both hospitals, for more than 15-years.

Leaders of both health systems say this kind of partnership is vital to keep care at a high level in our region, especially with budget deficits at Mercy Cadillac and layoffs at Mercy Grayling, coming with healthcare reform.

Before the deal is done, there must be a period of due diligence, and then it has to gain regulatory approval. If all goes as planned, a task force will be set up to see how to build services in Cadillac and Grayling with the goal of having patients stay in the community.
