Essentia Health and Marshfield Clinic Health System announced today the organizations have chosen not to move forward with their proposed integration.
Essentia Health and MCHS have engaged in meaningful discussion over the last two years about how the organizations could combine their unique strengths. The legacy health care providers decided that a combination at this time is not the right path forward for our respective organizations, colleagues and patients.
“As we’ve explored this opportunity, I appreciate the relationships we’ve built with the skilled Marshfield Clinic providers, staff and leaders who share our dedication to excellent care," said Essentia Health CEO Dr. David Herman. “Moving ahead, Essentia continues to focus on building innovative partnerships and transforming care for our communities. As a strong, growing organization, we are guided by our mission to make a healthy difference for those we are privileged to serve.”
