The announcement Friday that St. Joseph Health, the parent of Queen of the Valley Medical Center, intends to merge with another West Coast health care system shouldn’t affect most of the jobs at the Queen, said the CEO of St. Joseph Health.

St. Joseph Health, based in Irvine, intends to join forces with Providence Health & Services, which has its headquarters in Renton, Washington. The two health systems would form a new, single organization, one that could offer more choice for patients and possibly even lower costs, the nonprofit organizations said.
