Today, Edison-based JFK Health and Hackensack Meridian Health have announced the execution of a Letter of Intent (LOI) between the organizations regarding a potential affiliation.
JFK Health went through an extensive review process that considered various factors that would strengthen JFK and further its mission to keep the community healthy. JFK looked closely at how a partnership would help to enhance its clinical services, increase access to services for patients and their families, and further support JFK Health’s population health initiatives.
The proposed transaction would build upon the strengths of JFK Health and Hackensack Meridian Health. It would be aligned with JFK Health’s not-for profit mission and its goal to keep the community healthy. By affiliating with a quality focused system like Hackensack Meridian Health, JFK Health will be able to strategically make investments in new programs, services and technology to keep pace with the advanced health needs of the community.
