Flower, ProMedica boards finalize merger agreement.

SYLVANIA, Ohio--(HealthWire)--Dec. 8, 1995--The boards of trustees of Flower Hospital and ProMedica Health Systems have unanimously approved finalizing the merger of the two, local independent health care organizations.

Effective Jan. 1, 1996, Flower Hospital and Crestview of Ohio Inc. will become part of ProMedica Health Systems.

"The merger of two independent health care organizations is unprecedented in this area and a major step in the ongoing formation of an integrated delivery system that will position ProMedica as the region's leader in quality, cost-effective care," said Darryl Allen, chairperson, ProMedica board of trustees.

Dan Rissing will continue in his role as president and chief executive officer of ProMedica Health Systems, which is comprised of The Toledo Hospital, Flower Hospital, Crestview of Ohio Inc., Paramount Health Care, ProMedica Physician Support, ProMedica Foundation, Flower Hospital Foundation, and several other subsidiaries. Bill Glover, president and chief executive officer of Flower and Crestview, will become executive vice president of ProMedica Health Systems, responsible for the acute care hospitals, long-term care and the Lake Erie Health Alliance.

Flower, like The Toledo Hospital, will be an acute care facility within ProMedica. Randy Kelley will continue his role as chief operating officer of Flower. Barbara Steele was recently appointed as the new chief operating officer of The Toledo Hospital.

Committees are being formed to identify the next steps for coordinating services at the two hospitals. No immediate changes are expected to any clinical services, and medical staff leadership and management will continue to be involved in merger/coordination planning.

"Flower and The Toledo Hospital have a rich history of serving Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. We are excited about the opportunity before us to create an exceptional future of caring for our communities," Dan Rissing said.

"The enthusiasm of employees, administration, the medical staff and the boards of trustees for the merger is very evident. They are already generating ideas for collaboration and cooperation which we know will benefit the community in the future," Bill Glover commented.
