Ashland Hospital Talking Partnership
Ashland Community Hospital is negotiating with Dignity Health of San Francisco as a potential partner. This comes after an 8-month proposal and review process in which Dignity was one of five hospital organizations being considered, including Asante and Providence. Dignity Health is the nation’s 5th largest hospital system, with their nearest partner facilities in Mount Shasta, Redding and Red Bluff. Mark Marchetti is the hospital's CEO, and he says Dignity was a good fit in terms of business and culture. He also mentions that he will be keeping the Ashland City Council in the loop as their approval will be needed concerning any lease arrangements.
A 90-day negotiation process between Ashland Community and Dignity Heal began April 3rd.
