CHI, PeaceHealth suspend negotiations over forming partnership

The Columbian, April 4, 2013
Vancouver-based PeaceHealth and Catholic Health Initiatives said Wednesday they've suspended their discussions about forming a partnership to create a vast new regional health care network in the Pacific Northwest. PeaceHealth, Clark County's top private employer, had signed a nonbinding agreement with Colorado-based CHI in mid-August to explore the possibility of a 50-50 venture intended to boost both organizations' ability to expand and to provide more care to growing populations. But the two Catholic-affiliated health care giants "were unable to develop an integrated model that would provide the desired benefits and serve the best interests of both organizations," both nonprofit systems said in a joint news release. "CHI and PeaceHealth will remain actively engaged in exploring other opportunities to work together to strengthen their respective ministries in the Pacific Northwest."
