Centura Health and the District Board of Directors for St. Vincent General Hospital announced Tuesday that they will jointly develop, build and manage a new healthcare facility in Lake County and will expand on their almost two-decade partnership.
This means St. Vincent will be integrated into Centura’s clinical networks, giving patients access to Centura’s primary and specialty care providers. St. Vincent Hospital will be managed by leadership at St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in Frisco, which is in the Centura system. The District Board of Directors will continue to act as the hospital’s governing body, though the administrator will be a Centura employee and will report to the board.
“The relationship better equips St. Vincent Hospital and our community to navigate changes in health care,” St. Vincent Hospital board chairperson Byron Copley said in a statement. “We’re able to continue to respond to the needs of the community and offer high-value, quality care through the vast resources and integrated network that Centura Health brings. It is a tremendous benefit to work with a partner who wants to keep care local and help keep communities healthy.”
St. Vincent and Centura will split up responsibilities for the new healthcare facility, working together on design and on studying the community’s needs.
