Modern Healthcare

St. Joseph Health and Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian have received federal antitrust clearance for their plan form a new regional health system in Southern California. The Federal Trade Commission on Wednesday gave early clearance to the affiliation, in which nine-hospital St. Joseph, Orange, would combine with two-campus Hoag Memorial, Newport Beach.

A news release says each not-for-profit entity would retain its existing identity and faith affiliation—Catholic for St. Joseph and Presbyterian for Hoag.
