Ascension, AdventHealth to unwind AMITA Health Partnership

October 22, 2021  –  AdventHealth (Altamonte Springs, FL) and Ascension (St. Louis, MO) announced they are “unwinding” their AMITA Health partnership, the joint operating company the organizations have partnered on for nearly seven years.

Amita Health, a joint venture providing healthcare services to the greater Chicago area, includes 15 acute care hospitals, four specialty hospitals, and immediate and outpatient care centers.

The two organizations said they have determined that “going forward separately is in their collective best interest in order to more nimbly meet the changing needs and expectations of consumers in the rapidly evolving healthcare environment.”

Following the transition, AdventHealth and Ascension will operate their individual hospitals and care sites in the Chicago area. The organizations say there will be no disruption to patient care.

The health systems didn’t provide details about what prompted the decision to split up the partnership.
