ValleyCare Health System explores merger with bigger system
Sacramento Business Journal

ValleyCare Health System, one of the last significant independents in the Bay Area, is seeking an affiliation with a larger partner, officials confirmed late Thursday. “We are exploring an affiliation with a number of potential partners,” said spokeswoman Denise Bouillerce, adding that further details aren’t immediately available. The nonprofit system, which boasts 242 beds and 300 on-staff physicians, serves a fairly well-to-do area in the outer East Bay, and could be an attractive merger candidate for systems such as Walnut Creek’s John Muir Health, Sutter Health or others. John Muir is already linked to San Ramon Regional Medical Center in a joint partnership.
