Ohio Valley Hospital and Heritage Valley Health System Complete Affiliation

After receiving final regulatory approval, Ohio Valley Hospital and Heritage Valley Health System have officially joined together. The two not-for-profit healthcare institutions share the common mission of bringing high-quality, cost effective healthcare to their now-combined communities. By unifying the organizations, the enlarged health system can expand their footprint to further meet the healthcare needs of the region.

“We are looking forward to what the future holds for Ohio Valley Hospital by joining forces with an organization like Heritage Valley, that we highly respect and trust,” said Mark Brennan, Chair of the Board of Ohio Valley Hospital.

Ohio Valley Hospital is now a subsidiary of Heritage Valley Health System. Both Boards of Directors have collaborated over the past year to develop an agreement that best meets the needs of the community and patients who are served by Ohio Valley Hospital.

The alignment is expected to enable Ohio Valley Hospital to enhance its medical staff, expand clinical services and fund future capital projects. Ohio Valley Hospital, like many independent community hospitals, has been challenged over past years by increasing operating costs and decreasing reimbursement. “Our priority has always been, and will continue to be, to provide and increase quality healthcare for our community members,” said Brennan. “Affiliating with Heritage Valley Health System will allow us to do just that.”

“Heritage Valley is very pleased and honored to have Ohio Valley join our integrated healthcare organization,” said Lynn George, PhD, Chair of Heritage Valley Health System Board of Directors. “Our Board unanimously supported the affiliation and identical to Ohio Valley Hospital’s Board, remains committed to high quality, cost effective, locally accessible community healthcare.”
