Rochester, NY -- The boards of both Unity Health and Rochester General Health systems have approved an affiliation agreement today between the two hospital organizations.
The agreement is for an equal partnership between the operators of Rochester General and its affiliated hospitals....and Unity Hospital and its affiliates. They will be a fully integrated system with a single parent company and one board of directors, drawn equally from members of the two current boards.
All of this is pending state and federal government approval. That could take up to a year.
The two organizations announced they were working towards affiliation back in April.
