HMA Approves Merger -- Again

The new board of directors at Health Management Associates, Inc. has approved a merger with Community Health Systems, Inc., the Ocala Star-Banner reports. The $7.6-billion deal was announced in July, but soon after, several new members became part of the HMA board. The board unanimously approved the acquisition by CHS.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
