After conversations with the Attorney General’s office last week, we have taken an important step with regard to our affiliation plans with South Shore Hospital (SSH) and Hallmark Health System (HHS). The Attorney General made a public statement and a formal filing with the court yesterday.
We have listened and heard the public concerns, and in conjunction with the leadership at SSH, we have decided that the best approach is not to proceed with our plan to bring SSH into Partners. We are extremely grateful to the entire SSH community for their tireless commitment to our collective vision. We have a strong clinical affiliation with SSH and that will continue.
