Wellmont Health System and Mountain States Health Alliance have agreed to exclusively explore the creation of a new, integrated and locally governed health system that will create an exciting future for healthcare in our region.

The proposed merger was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both systems because they believe a Wellmont and Mountain States combination will demonstrate our shared commitment to the people in our region – a commitment no one else can possibly be more passionate about than we are.

This will be an opportunity for our two organizations to come together and build something brand new that reflects what our community really needs – today and in the years ahead.

This website is dedicated to sharing important news about this proposed merger as we continue to discuss the many details that are yet to be finalized. Please sign up to receive the latest updates and check back for new information.

There’s a long road ahead, but there is no doubt we will be better… together. Thank you for joining us in defining a new future for healthcare in our region.
