Tenet To Acquire Emanuel Medical Center In Turlock, Calif.

Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Emanuel Medical Center, a 209-bed hospital located in Turlock, Calif. The acquisition of Emanuel Medical Center represents a significant step in expanding Tenet’s integrated healthcare network in California’s Central Valley region. Emanuel Medical Center will join Doctors Medical Center of Modesto and Doctors Hospital of Manteca in providing patient-centered care in the region. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

As part of the enhanced network, these hospitals will build upon their existing base of high-quality services and improve the efficiency and coordination of healthcare delivery in the communities they serve. The acquisition strongly positions the network to improve patient care by integrating physician organizations, developing additional outpatient facilities in locations convenient for patients, and expanding Tenet’s accountable care offerings in the Central Valley to include Emanuel Medical Center.

“The combination of Emanuel Medical Center with Tenet’s existing hospitals represents the alignment of leading healthcare organizations with a long history of providing high-quality patient care in the Central Valley region,” said Jeff Koury, senior vice president for Tenet’s California region. “We all share the same deep commitment to meeting the community’s healthcare needs and providing patients with expanded choices for care as part of an integrated healthcare network.”

Through this acquisition Emanuel will be part of Tenet’s broader healthcare network, including the company’s nationally-recognized quality programs. Emanuel Medical Center will retain its affiliation with the Evangelical Covenant Church and its faith-based culture and practices. Tenet has significant experience acquiring hospitals from faith-based organizations, such as the Catholic and Baptist churches, and maintaining their religious identities and missions.

“Emanuel Medical Center is a natural fit for Tenet’s expanding network in the Central Valley to provide the community and our patients coordinated care that is close to home. We are excited to work with the dedicated and talented employees and physicians of Emanuel Medical Center who provide exemplary medical care within the community,” commented Koury.
