Selecting an Affiliation Partner


Good Samaritan Health System, Lebanon, Pennsylvania


To facilitate a process that would identify a potential partner for an affiliation.


After building consensus that partnership was the desired future state for Good Samaritan (Phase I), Veralon assisted in the development and distribution of a request for proposal (RFP) to potential partners (Phase II). We then evaluated each proposal, facilitated presentations and site visits for selected candidates, and negotiated initial terms leading to a letter of intent.


Good Samaritan chose a preferred partner, and signed a letter of intent and subsequent definitive agreement with WellSpan Health. Good Samaritan and WellSpan are currently implementing operational and systems integration initiatives.
