San Francisco Business Times

UCSF Medical Center and John Muir Health have unveiled plans for a joint venture to link San Francisco’s premier academic medical center with the East Bay health-care powerhouse. The two systems announced Tuesday a letter of intent to develop a new company to “serve as the cornerstone of a Bay Area health network.” Representatives said they expect a deal to be finalized by the end of the year. George Sauter, chief strategy officer of John Muir Health, stressed that Muir was not joining UCSF’s existing network, but that the two were jointly forming a new one.
