Bradley attorney Jay Hardcastle was quoted in Healthcare Dive on an announcement that Mission Health intends to join HCA Healthcare. Mission stated that while some jobs would be eliminated over time, it does not “anticipate significant changes” from what would occur if it did not join with HCA. Mission pointed to new jobs for clinical staff being created by the potential merger as one area of potential growth.
“I don’t know if in this case Mission looked to the future and saw that it wasn't going to be [able to] operate at that level of surplus cash flow. I don’t know why you would sell, if you were doing well and thinking you would continue to do well," said Hardcastle.
