CHI-Dignity mega-merger to test co-CEO model

December 9, 2017

Catholic Health Initiatives and Dignity Health signed a definitive agreement to merge, potentially creating the nation’s largest not-for-profit hospital company – 139 hospitals and 159,000 employees – with a co-CEO model. Modern Healthcare refers to Hackensack Meridian Health’s Co-CEOs Bob Garrett and John Lloyd as being among the few organizations that have taken this approach.
