Transfer of Three CHI Hospitals to Trinity Health Completed

04/02/10

The transfer of three CHI hospitals in Idaho and Oregon to Trinity Health, Novi, Mich., was completed March 31. Mercy Medical Center, Nampa, Idaho; Holy Rosary Medical Center, Ontario, Ore,; and St. Elizabeth Health Services, Baker City, Ore., are now part of a new integrated, regional health system operated by Trinity Health.

“By combining the strengths of the three CHI hospitals with Trinity Health’s existing presence in Boise with Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, the future of the health care ministries in Idaho and Western Oregon over the long term will be sustained,” said Kevin Lofton, CHI’s president and chief executive officer.

The new regional health care ministry has more than 4,300 associates, 950 medical staff members and annual revenue of more than $650 million. On April 6, following the first regional board meeting, leaders from Trinity Health, Catholic Health Initiatives and each hospital will take part in a ceremony to commemorate this sacred transfer of sponsorship. At that time, the health system name will be announced as part of the ceremony where the four hospitals will join to serve together.

About Catholic Health Initiatives: CHI is a national nonprofit health organization with headquarters in Denver. The faith-based system operates in 18 states and includes 72 hospitals; 40 long-term care, assisted- and residential-living facilities; and two community health-services organizations.

With annual revenues of $8.6 billion, CHI ranks as the nation’s second-largest Catholic health care system.
