Allen County Regional Hospital will pursue a possible lease with Saint Lukes Health System.
The board of trustees Tuesday signed a letter of intent to allow Saint Lukes to review its facilities and operations, and to make an offer for a lease. No deal has been made, but its the clearest indication yet that trustees want to make a management change.
A management contract with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) remains in place; HCAs contract expires in June 2020, which prompted trustees last year to review the contract and consider alternatives. Saint Lukes was one of four companies, including HCA, that gave proposals.
