Hospitals Keep Talking About Merger

Bert Fish Medical Center

Talks to complete Bert Fish Medical Center’s third attempt to merge with Florida Hospital are about halfway done, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.


Adventist Health System, which owns the Florida Hospital chain, has offered $40 million for the publicly owned Bert Fish and will invest $35 million into the hospital, according to the News-Journal.


The proposal also calls for cutting the Southeast Volusia Hospital District hospital taxing rate by 70 percent over the next seven years, the News-Journal reports.
