Two-hospital Pittsburgh Mercy Health System and its parent, 31-hospital Catholic Health East, Newtown Square, Pa., have completed their previously announced affiliation with 137-bed Jeannette (Pa.) District Memorial Hospital, which has been renamed Mercy Jeannette Hospital. Under terms of the deal, Mercy Jeannette became a subsidiary of Pittsburgh Mercy and a member of CHE. Pittsburgh Mercy assumed governance, control and authority over Mercy Jeannette's operations, assets and debt. The Jeannette Hospital Foundation remains a separate organization. -- by Cinda Becker
