WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has signed a letter of intent to pursue an affiliation with a north-central Pennsylvania hospital network.
Susquehanna (sus-kweh-HAN’-nah) Health and UPMC jointly announced the letter of intent Thursday.
The details of the affiliation have yet to be determined.
Susquehanna serves 11 counties through four hospitals, Divine Providence, Muncy Valley, Soldiers & Sailors Memorial and Williamsport Regional Medical Center.
Susquehanna’s president and CEO Steven Johnson says the pending affiliation “is a natural evolution of our 25-year history of successful partnerships to better serve our community.”
His counterpart at UPMC, Jeffrey Romoff, says the eventual agreement will “position UPMC Susquehanna Health as the leading provider of world-class care at the lowest possible cost in north-central Pennsylvania.”
