Nuns Sell Unsellable Hospital

This report from the Wall Street Journal’s Health Blog explains that the St. Francis Hospital in Blue Island, Illinois (an SSM Healthcare facility) is being sold to Transition Healthcare.

Upon the finalization of the deal, St. Francis Hospital will become MetroSouth Medical Center.

A change in name, leadership and mission is quite an undertaking. However, judging from the info available from THC’s home page, this does sound a bit like a t.v. show
