CHOP in Discussions about Partnership with Vanguard Health

April 25, 2012

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is in talks to build a facility in San Antonio, Texas, in partnership with publicly traded Vanguard Health Systems Inc., a Tennessee company that owns the Baptist Health System in that city.

Children’s spokesman George V. Bochanski Jr. confirmed the discussions earlier this week.

“We think it presents a good opportunity as part of the long-term planning at CHOP to expand our services,” Bochanski said. He wouldn’t provide details because talks were continuing.

Children’s and Vanguard Health are expected within 60 days to complete a formal proposal for University Health System and the University of Texas Health Science Center, a hospital and medical school in San Antonio that for years have been exploring options for creating a comprehensive children’s health-care network for that metropolitan area.

The discussions became public last week, the newspaper said, when Children’s and Vanguard sent a letter to the presidents of the University Health System and the University of Texas Health Science Center, the San Antonio Express-Times reported recently.
