There’s only one independent hospital left in Rhode Island. But South County Hospital is ramping up efforts to find a partner.
South County Hospital in Wakefield has been looking for a partner to help boost its prospects. At one time the 100-bed facility was reportedly exploring a relationship with an out-of-state health system. But South County CFO Tom Breen says he’d like to find a local partner.
“We are still looking," said Breen. "Again we certainly feel there are great systems in Rhode Island. How we work with them has yet to be determined.”
