Baptist Health System, Tenet to Create New Healthcare NetworkJun 23, 2015
The new network will unite Baptist Health System’s four hospitals – Citizens Baptist Medical Center, Princeton Baptist Medical Center, Shelby Baptist Medical Center and Walker Baptist Medical Center – and include Tenet’s Brookwood Medical Center and each organization’s related businesses.
“We are excited about joining with Tenet to provide high-quality healthcare to communities across central Alabama,” Keith Parrott, chief executive officer of Baptist Health System, stated Page 8 in a press release. “This partnership will strengthen our collective efforts and enhance healthcare across the region while also preserving the Baptist name and tradition, maintaining our Christian values and identity, and supporting our faith-based approach to healthcare.”
Under the joint venture arrangement, Tenet will be the majority partner and will manage the network’s operations.
