Hospital groups prepare to merge

John C. Lincoln Health Network and Scottsdale Healthcare have endorsed a letter of intent to form a system-wide affiliation to better meet the healthcare needs and thus improve the health of the communities they serve. Discussions are anticipated to be complete by July 31.

The new nonprofit system, which would be called Scottsdale Lincoln Health Network, would include five hospitals—including John C. Lincoln North Mountain—with approximately 10,500 employees, 3,700 affiliated physicians and 3,100 volunteers. Scottsdale Lincoln Health Network also would include an extensive primary care physician network, urgent care centers, clinical research, medical education, an inpatient rehabilitation hospital, an Accountable Care Organization, two foundations and extensive community services.
