Partners Announces Plans to Acquire Rhode Island’s Care New England

NEC member Partners HealthCare recently announced it will acquire Rhode Island’s Care New England Health System.

As part of the deal, Partners HealthCare would acquire Women & Infant Hospital in Providence, Butler Hospital in Providence, Kent Hospital in Warwick, as well as a hospice agency and a mental health/addiction treatment center. The two healthcare systems already have an existing relationship through Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s cardiovascular services as well as a partnership on psychiatric services between McLean Hospital in Massachusetts  and Butler Hospital in Rhode Island.

“Today’s announcement is the beginning of a process that will better meet the needs of this region’s patients by improving access to specialized care while working to create new efficiencies in the delivery of that care,” said Dr. David Torchiana, Partners’ Chief Executive.

The New England Council congratulates Partners on the merger talks as the healthcare system continues to expand its reach throughout New England. Read more in The Boston Globe and Providence Journal.
