Emanuel Medical Center will remain an independent hospital with its own medical staff and governing board after it is acquired by for-profit Tenet Healthcare Corp., a spokeswoman confirmed.

The hospital’s current owner and Tenet are working to complete the long-awaited acquisition by Aug. 1. Tenet announced an agreement to purchase the 209-bed hospital in February 2013, but the $131 million deal had to clear a Federal Trade Commission review last year and meet conditions set by the state attorney general in January.
