Allen County Regional Hospital should come under the control of Saint Luke’s Health System by April 1.

That’s the tentative start date announced by ACRH Board of Trustees Tuesday night. Hospital officials have agreed to lease the facility to Saint Luke’s, but a transition from the current management system will take several months.

The hospital currently is owned and operated by the county, with a contract with Hospital Corporation of America to provide key management positions and various operations. That contract expires in June. Representatives from the board of trustees, HCA and Saint Luke’s will need time to transfer various systems.
