Emanuel in Turlock still negotiating with potential buyer
Modesto Bee

Emanuel Medical Center of Turlock continues with exclusive negotiations with Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare Corp., but there may be no announcement on the potential sale of the hospital until January, the hospital’s top executive said. “I think it would be a miracle to have it done before the holidays,” Emanuel Chief Executive Officer John Sigsbury said Friday. He said there are no sticking points in the talks.

The two entities are working through a due-diligence process, with attorneys and accountants looking at 30,000 pages of records that were uploaded to a secure Web site, he said.
