Evangelical Community Hospital, a healthcare facility situated in the US, has officially become a part of WellSpan Health, effective on July 8.  

The transaction has been finalised after the fulfilment of all necessary regulatory requirements by both the mission-driven organisations. 

A definitive agreement related to the affiliation of the two healthcare organisations was first announced in February. 

As a result of the transaction, Evangelical Community Hospital has now been renamed ‘WellSpan Evangelical Community Hospital’. 

Besides, the care network associated with Evangelical Community Hospital will now provide primary, speciality, and acute care services in the Central Susquehanna Valley region, ensuring convenient access for local residents. 

The affiliation further aligns Evangelical with WellSpan’s comprehensive healthcare delivery system, encompassing eight hospitals, 2,000 employed providers, more than 21,000 team members, and 220 locations.
