​(THREE RIVERS) – After months of talks and negotiations, it's finally official.
​Representatives with Three Rivers Health and Beacon Health System announced Monday they have finalized an agreement for the 60 bed acute care facility in Three Rivers to become the eighth hospital in the non-profit Beacon Health System. It will also be the first in Michigan.
​For over a century, Three Rivers Health has been serving St. Joseph and Kalamazoo Counties, as well as surrounding communities in Southern Michigan. Three Rivers Health operates one hospital and 16 clinics and employs approximately 550 associates. They also offer a variety of inpatient and outpatient services, including emergency care, an inpatient rehabilitation center, orthopedics and women's health.

​Three Rivers Health also owns and operates the HealthTRAC Fitness Center, located at their South Health Parkway campus.

​Under the agreement, Beacon Health System has committed to investing more than $20 million during the next five years at Three Rivers Health to improve its facilities and to facilitate growth. Both Beacon Health System and Three Rivers Health share a commitment to providing clinical excellence and outstanding care close to home with local decision making and governance.

​Dave Shannon, President and CEO of Three Rivers Health says after a long process of determining the best route for the future of Three Rivers Health, they could not be more excited to partner with Beacon Health System. He says the organization's values, beliefs and cultures are very much aligned. In addition, having the support of a larger health system allows Three Rivers Health to operate more efficiently and will better equip them to serve their patient's needs.

​This partnership expands patient access to the 1,100 Beacon Health System physicians, providers and specialists who offer clinical expertise in trauma, orthopedics, heart, vascular and cancer care.
