Bridgewater Goddard Park Medical Associates, a multispecialty physicians group based in Brockton, Mass., will become a part of the Brockton Hospital Corp.s physician practice network.
Details of the deal, including whether Brockton will purchase Bridgewater, will be formally announced early next year, but the move is part of a plan to grow Brockton from a local to a regional provider with a network of physicians groups, according to information posted to Brocktons Web site. The plan also includes changing Brocktons name to Signature Healthcare and more closely linking 253-bed Brockton Hospital and its school of nursing with its four physicians groups. -- by Shawn Rhea
