Providence St. Mary Medical Center and Walla Walla General Hospital this week announced a coming collaboration. This summer, most likely in early July, the two hospitals will become one entity, under a move being called a “transfer of membership.” Through the merge, Walla Walla General will cease to be a member of Adventist Health and will become a member of Providence Health & Services. Hospital leaders signed the letter of intent last week.
There will be no immediate staff changes, and patient care will continue as it is now for the foreseeable future at Walla Walla General. Click here to read more from the Tri-City Herald. (Ashley Beil)
