El Centro Regional Medical Center, Pioneers Memorial Hospital to work toward partnership
Imperial Valley Press Online

The El Centro Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees and the Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District Board of Directors unanimously approved a letter of intent Monday that outlines the terms and conditions for an affiliation between the two hospitals. The document is not legally binding. But, it helps the two agencies work toward a partnership that officials say will expand the level of patient care in the Imperial Valley and improve the odds that both facilities will weather the changes in the healthcare industry that were accelerated by the Affordable Care Act.
