Major Bay Area health pact could create new hospitals
San Francisco Business Times

UCSF Medical Center, already engaged in a regionwide battle with Stanford Health Care, has significantly tightened its connections with John Muir Health.

The two hospital systems said late Monday they’re creating a jointly owned network “to provide patients with high-quality care at an affordable price,” along with a development company to build new medical facilities and increase the number of doctors in their network, and a new health plan allowing them to provide insurance coverage as well as care in the Bay Area.
