ST. MARY HOSPITAL STRENGTHENS REGIONAL PRESENCE WITH BEAUMONT AFFILIATION

 ST. MARY HOSPITAL STRENGTHENS REGIONAL PRESENCE
 WITH BEAUMONT AFFILIATION
 LIVONIA, Mich., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Sister Mary Modesta, president and CEO, St. Mary Hospital of Livonia, announced today an affiliation with Beaumont Hospital of Royal Oak and Troy to enhance and expand healthcare delivery in Livonia and its surrounding communities.
 Sister Modesta further stated that the affiliation will allow both institutions not only to continue independent operations and governing boards, but will develop a Liaison Committee to undertake joint planning and program development.
 This affiliation does not constitute a merger or acquisition. St. Mary and Beaumont will remain independent hospitals -- administratively and financially.
 With the assistance of Superior Consultant Company, Inc., of Farmington Hills, an extensive request for affiliation process began in May of 1991. Beaumont was selected from a group of major healthcare providers.
 "We are taking a proactive role and an innovative solution to strengthen the services at St. Mary Hospital," said Sister Modesta. One of the goals and criteria presented to the potential affiliate was to preserve the mission of the Felician Sisters at St. Mary Hospital and ensure long-term growth and development.
 "The Catholic values of St. Mary Hospital will be preserved by our support and commitment to infuse medical talent so St. Mary Hospital can become a strong partner in a network of like-minded organizations," said Kenneth E. Myers, president and CEO, William Beaumont Hospital.
 St. Mary Hospital is a non-teaching community hospital, and its primary reason for seeking an affiliation is the recruitment and retention of top-quality practitioners, including specialists and sub- specialist coverage that will enhance its provision of high-quality medical services to the community.
 "Beaumont will benefit by associating with St. Mary Hospital as a partner in its tertiary referral network by the placement of its newly trained physicians in an area where they can continue referrals for high-risk patients," added Myers.
 Details of the agreement have not been finalized.
 Both Sister Modesta and Myers, backed by the support of their respective boards, view the agreement as a long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship.
 St. Mary Hospital is a 304-bed acute care community hospital offering medical/surgical, intensive/cardiac care, oncology, obstetrics, mental health, chemical dependency, and 24-hour emergency care. St. Mary Hospital also operates the St. Mary Hospital Family Medical Center in Livonia, St. Mary Health Care Center - Livonia, St. Mary Health Care Center - Northville, and Marywood Nursing Care Center and Marybrook Manor in Livonia.
 William Beaumont Hospital operates two hospitals in Royal Oak and Troy, with a total of 1,118 beds. Other Beaumont facilities include medical buildings in Royal Oak, Troy, West Bloomfield and Rochester Hills; a Rehabilitation and Health Center in Birmingham; a health care clinic in Ferndale; Shelby Nursing Center in Shelby Township; West Bloomfield Nursing and Convalescent Center; and Cherrywood Nursing and Living Center in Sterling Heights.
