Ascension has signed a definitive agreement with Crittenton Hospital Medical Center for the facility to become part of Ascension Michigan.

Crittenton Hospital Medical Center will bring a strong Northern Oakland County presence to the statewide service area of Ascension Michigan, which includes St. John Providence in southeast Michigan, Borgess Health in Kalamazoo, Genesys in Grand Blanc, St. Mary’s of Michigan in Saginaw and Standish, and St. Joseph Health System in Tawas.

In January, the Crittenton Hospital Medical Center Board of Trustees chose to join Ascension Michigan following months of evaluating proposals from various health systems. A letter of intent was signed to proceed with the due-diligence process.

In becoming part of Ascension Michigan, Crittenton Hospital Medical Center will increase its ability to pursue its goal of creating a clinically integrated system of care that will be positioned to manage the health of populations in partnership with insurers. As part of the largest non-profit health system in the country, Ascension, the hospital will enjoy the support of a national system that is benefiting from shared best clinical practices, cost efficiencies, and quality improvements.

Financial terms of the transaction will not be disclosed.
