OSF HealthCare is moving to add two new hospitals to its expanding network.
OSF and Presence Health have signed a letter of intent for OSF to take control of Presence Covenant Medical Center in Urbana and Presence United Samaritans Medical Center in Danville. The deal is expected to close early next year.
“This summer marks 140 years since the founding of our health care Ministry, built on the promise to serve with the greatest care and love. I can think of no more joyous way to celebrate the occasion than by extending the OSF HealthCare mission to Urbana and Danville,” said Sister Judith Ann Duvall, O.S.F., chairperson of the OSF HealthCare board in a statement. “This transfer of ownership ensures high-quality Catholic hospital services will continue in these communities we have been called to serve.”
Presence will continue to run its other hospitals in the Chicago area.
