Officials at Butler Health System and Excela Health have signed a letter of intent to combine their respective organizations into a new health system serving western Pennsylvania.
The combined organization will present the requisite scale to accelerate and elevate its relevancy and essentiality in the region’s healthcare marketplace.
When finalized, the new health system will generate over $1 billion in revenue, employ 7,300 people and have over 1,000 physicians and practitioners that serve a population of 750,000. This combination will support five hospitals, including Butler, Clarion, Frick, Latrobe and Westmoreland hospitals.
Topics such as leadership and new system name will be determined. Remaining discussions, required regulatory approval and final board approvals could take through 2022.
