Carondelet Health, HCA Midwest Health System Discontinue Plans for Sale
KANSAS CITY, MO—In May 2013, Carondelet Health, a Health Ministry of Ascension Health, and HCA Midwest Health System announced plans for Carondelet Health to sell St. Joseph Medical Center, St. Mary’s Medical Center and several other subsidiaries to HCA Midwest.
Since that time, Carondelet Health, Ascension Health and HCA Midwest have been working diligently to bring the transaction to conclusion, including undergoing the required Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulatory review.
Unfortunately, after a lengthy FTC review process, it has become clear that a timely, supportive decision from the FTC will not be forthcoming. As a result, Ascension Health and HCA Midwest have discontinued plans for the sale.
Carondelet Health’s staff and physicians continue to remain focused on delivering high-quality care to those they serve.
