Bon Secours Health System and Mercy Health announced an intent to merge on Wednesday, planning to create one of the largest health systems in the country.
The Catholic health ministries will span seven states in the eastern U.S. when merged.
“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 Health System. “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 health care.”
