Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center said it plans to sign a letter of intent to acquire Jordan Health Systems, a not-for-profit organization that owns a 155-bed hospital in Plymouth, Mass.
Jordan had previously established an affiliation with Tufts Medical Center in 2010. Both Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Tufts Medical Center are based in Boston.
In a joint new release, Jordan Health Systems President and CEO Peter Holden said the system conducted a review of “several affiliation agreements” before choosing the 621-bed Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The organizations said they plan to begin a due-diligence process immediately.
