Gibson General Hospital Enters into Affiliation with Deaconess

Gibson General Hospital has entered into a formal management agreement with Deaconess Health System. The goal of this agreement is to enhance services, increase care coordination and clinical integration between the healthcare providers and the communities they serve. Affiliation allows the hospitals to work together on important initiatives like population health management, staff and physician education, and providing seamless transitions of care from the doctor's office to medical specialists and advanced procedures.

No assets are being purchased and Gibson General Hospital will remain a local, independent hospital dedicated to providing exceptional care to the people in and around Princeton.

"The Gibson General Hospital Board of Directors unanimously agreed to enter into a relationship with Deaconess as it adds value and quality to healthcare provided in our community," said Chairman of the Board Robert Gibson.
