Bert Fish Medical Center will negotiate exclusively with Florida Hospital on a merger, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports. 
A regional CEO with Florida Hospital characterized the approval from the Southeast Volusia Hospital District Board of Commissioners as the “engagement” before the marriage of the 112-bed public hospital to the larger hospital system. It’s the second time the two have tried a merger, the News-Journal reports. 

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.
