Mercy Health Partners partnership

2015 – Mercy Health Partners purchased a controlling interest in Mercy Premium Surgery Center to enable the surgery center to take advantage of the hospital’s integrated service network and the hospital’s payer contracting clout.  The hospital purchased its additional ownership interest from Community Care and the hospital-based physician partners.  Following the transaction, Community Care holds a minority ownership position in the center and will continue providing management services.  Mercy Premium Surgery Center is located in Elyria, Ohio.
