TN firm acquires 2 northeast PA hospitals

Beaver County Times / Associated Press, January 4, 2012

A Tennessee-based company is the new owner of two more hospitals in northeastern Pennsylvania. Community Health Systems Inc. on Tuesday announced the acquisition of the 217-bed Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton and the 25-bed Mid-Valley Hospital in Peckville. The $152 million deal was approved by a Lackawanna County judge last month. Community Health Systems, a for-profit company based near Nashville, says its subsidiaries now control substantially all of the Moses Taylor Health Care Health System.
