Huntsville Hospital Health System and Lincoln Health System have jointly announced the completion of their due diligence process for the integration of their organizations. Under the 40-year lease agreement which takes effect July 1, Huntsville Hospital Health System assumes control and responsibility for operating all facilities of the Lincoln Health System, including Lincoln Medical Center, Donalson Care Center, Patrick Rehab-Wellness Center, Lincoln Medical Home Health and Hospice and LMC Ambulance Service.
“We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the Huntsville Hospital Health System, and are excited for our community to benefit from it,” said Mary Beth Seals, President of Lincoln Health System. “The Huntsville system has helped many North Alabama hospitals progress and thrive through their partnerships. We are happy to be the latest group to be integrated into the organization.”
Jeff Samz, CEO of the Huntsville Hospital Health System, said the agreement was similar to what his organization had done with other community hospitals in north Alabama like Athens-Limestone Hospital, Decatur Morgan Hospital, Marshall Medical Centers, Helen Keller Hospital, and Highlands Medical Center.
“We welcome Lincoln Health System to our Health System. Our relationship with Lincoln Health System goes back many years and we look forward to working with their team as we serve our respective patients and communities,” said Samz.
