Methodist Hospital in Henderson has finalized its affiliation agreement with Evansville-based Deaconess Health System.
As of 12:33 Friday afternoon, Methodist has become what administrators are calling a “Deaconess network affiliate.”
Deaconess will own a third of Methodist and get a minority stake in its board, but the hospitals will remain independent.
Deaconess will invest in renovations to the emergency department at the Methodist Hospital in Union County. Deaconess will also renovate office space at the Methodist Hospital in Henderson.
