Harrison issues August 2013 edition of Message from the CEO - 8/9/2013

Video program provides overview of Harrison-Franciscan Affiliation

Harrison’s August edition of Message from the CEO features a discussion with President and CEO Scott Bosch providing further detail surrounding affiliation with Tacoma-based Franciscan Health System.

While the Harrison-Franciscan affiliation was announced in October 2012, planning of whether to affiliate and then consideration of the nearly two dozen affiliate proposals spanned a total of 27 months. The affiliation became official August 7, 2013 after reviews by state and federal regulatory agencies were finalized. This agreement will allow Harrison Medical Center to continue operations as a secular (non-religious) nonprofit community medical center.
