All Children’s Hospital Board Votes to Integrate with Johns Hopkins Medicine
Release Date: January 28, 2011
All Children’s Hospital (ACH) and Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) are pleased to announce another step in the progression toward their planned integration. On January 27, 2011, the All Children’s Health System Board voted favorably on the Johns Hopkins integration. The integration of All Children’s Hospital into Johns Hopkins Medicine creates a synergy that allows both partners to continue our mission-centric work in children’s health care. We believe it increases All Children’s Hospital’s value as a key community asset, extending benefits near and beyond to children in need of top-notch clinical care, while adding the advantage of the world-class teaching and research opportunities of Johns Hopkins Medicine. ACH and JHM will begin the necessary filings and set a closing date. The process is expected to take approximately 60 days. It is not appropriate for us to comment on the proposed integration during this review process, but we will make appropriate announcements when this process is completed.
