Baptist Health to Acquire Drew Memorial Health System

The acquisition will be completed in December.

By HFT Staff

Baptist Health has reached a definitive agreement to add Drew Memorial Health System in Monticello to the Baptist Health system. The acquisition will be subject to customary regulatory approvals, and in the interim, Baptist Health will immediately begin managing Drew Memorial Health System’s general operations. 

In December, Baptist Health will officially add Drew Memorial Health System, which includes a 60-bed hospital, two clinics and home health. That same month, the Monticello hospital will become Baptist Health’s 12th hospital and will be named “Baptist Health Medical Center-Drew County.” 

Drew Memorial Health System has approximately 350 employees on its campus in Monticello. The health system offers numerous services such as a cancer and infusion center, emergency department, wound center, rehab therapy, respiratory therapy, women’s services, a sleep center, radiology and laboratory, among others.  

The period from October until acquisition in December will allow the opportunity to minimize disruptions to operations and help with a smooth transition.
