As part of implementing a strategy that includes forging important partnerships that will foster the growth of New England Baptist Hospital as the premier provider of musculoskeletal care throughout New England, the hospital has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Harvard Faculty Medical Practices at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to explore potential opportunities for partnership.
Over the next 90 to 120 days, a team from New England Baptist will be meeting with counterparts at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to explore further collaborative opportunities. It is important to note that New England Baptist is not exploring a merger of any kind. We will continue to develop our current partnerships with our key private practice physician groups throughout the Commonwealth. Our future is very bright as a specialty network of orthopedic and musculoskeletal experts and any collaborative efforts will be focused on building upon this set of strengths.
We are excited about the possibility of creating a new venture that would benefit patients and consumers far into the future.
