St. Catherine, St. Rose to Join Centura Health

CHI agreed to integrate St. Catherine Hospital, Garden City, KS, and St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center, Great Bend, KS, into Centura Health, Englewood, CO. The decision followed a unanimous recommendation from the St. Catherine, St. Rose and Centura Health boards of directors, and final approval from CHI.

The integration of the two facilities with Centura Health will unite all CHI hospitals in Colorado and Kansas in a single regional structure. The consolidation will benefit patients in the region by facilitating shared best practices, linked systems of care and transparent exchanges of health records. Great Bend, Garden City and their surrounding communities will maintain local access to services while improving the availability of physician specialty care through the Centura Health network.
