Two local health care providers are merging. Beloit Memorial Hospital and Beloit Clinic have been working together for years.
Beloit Memorial President and CEO Gregg Britton says now the two health care providers will join forces under the name Beloit Health System. Britton says the merger will help the providers to sustain themselves long into the future. Even though the 1109 hospital and 360 clinic employees are expected to be retained according to a news release, future consolidation to prevent duplication of services is possible.
The change takes place January first.
