St. Joseph's Hospital, Guthrie Healthcare System call off merger

Elmira Star-Gazette, November 12, 2009

St. Joseph's Hospital of Elmira, NY, and Guthrie Healthcare System of Sayre, PA, have called off plans to unite the two facilities under the Guthrie banner. The two organizations are still committed to working together, as demonstrated by the number of Guthrie physicians on St. Joseph's staff, St. Joseph's spokesman Denis Sweeney said. However, the organizations have agreed that it's not a good time to merge given the economic climate and "the uncertainty of the reimbursement changes in New York state and Pennsylvania," Sweeney added.
