Tenet negotiating to buy Emanuel Medical Center in Turlock
Modesto Bee

Emanuel Medical Center and Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare Corp. are engaged in exclusive negotiations that could result in the for-profit company buying the 209-bed church-owned hospital, officials confirmed Thursday. Emanuel made the announcement some 2½ months after its leaders said they were exploring affiliations with larger health care organizations, with options including sale of the hospital. An independent hospital founded in 1917, Emanuel faces increasing difficulties in the turbulent health care arena.
