Bon Secours Health System announced their intent to merge with Mercy Health, which operates hospitals in OH and Kentucky, to create one of the largest Catholic health systems in the eastern United States.

More than 57,000 associates and 2,100 employed physicians and advance practice clinicians would work in more than 1,000 locations across the East Coast, Ohio and Kentucky, including more than 50 home health agencies, hospices, skilled-nursing and assisted- living facilities.

Mercy is the biggest system in OH and Bon Secours operates in six states in the Eastern U.S.

"The mission, vision, values and geographic service areas of Bon Secours and Mercy Health are remarkably well-aligned and highly complementary,"said Richard J. Statuto, president and CEO of Bon Secours, in a statement".

The merged health systems would be one of top 20 health systems in the nation and the fifth-largest Catholic health system.

The two systems haven't finalized a definitive merger agreement and the deal will require regulatory approval. Executives from both Bon Secours and Mercy said the merger is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

John Stacher Jr., Mercy Health president and CEO, said they both want to provide communities with low-priced, high-value health care. Bon Secours opened St. Mary's Hospital in Richmond in 1966. "This merger strengthens our shared commitment to improve population health, eliminate health disparities, build strength to address social determinants of health, and invest heavily in innovating our approaches to healthcare". Its clinically integrated network, coordinates more effective and efficient care for more than 200,000 patients, saving money for taxpayers through the Medicare Shared Savings Program. Those sites of care are located in Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Kentucky, Florida New York and Ohio.

Bon Secours Health System is a not-for-profit Catholic health system sponsored by Bon Secours Ministries and founded by the Sisters of Bon Secours.
