Memorial Health Services in Anaheim, Calif., said it agreed to sell Anaheim Memorial Medical Center to AHMC Healthcare, Alhambra, Calif., for an undisclosed sum. The not-for-profit system found three previous buyers for the 223-bed facility, but two were rejected by the state, and one fell through. The latest plan was submitted to state regulators last month, according to Memorial Health Services. AHMC Healthcare, formed in 2004, is a for-profit hospital system in Southern California that includes 210-bed Garfield Medical Center, Monterey Park, and 82-bed Whittier (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center. Officials said that they would maintain all services, including 24-hour emergency care. AHMC is committed to ensuring the future of Anaheim Memorial Medical Center as part of a strong, regionally owned system that serves the healthcare needs of the community, said Jonathan Wu, chairman of AHMC Healthcare, in a written statement.
