PeaceHealth Merger

Posted on 29th October 2010 at 08:06

The possible merger of Southwest Washington Medical Center with Bellevue-based PeaceHealth took another step forward, as the Board of Directors for Southwest Washington voted unanimously to move ahead with that merger. The vote was reported in this morning’s Vancouver Columbian, announcing that the action was taken in a board retreat on the 22nd and 23rd of this month. Southwest spokesman Ken Cole says that the vote doesn’t guarantee the merger, but it is an important step toward making it happen. The full boards of Southwest and PeaceHealth area expected to take final votes on completion of a merger agreement some time next month.
