Holy Spirit Hospital in Cumberland County says they are weighing options in regards to merging with Geisinger Health System.

The healthcare organizations announced today they signed a letter of intent to come up with ways they can work together to benefit healthcare in Central Pennsylvania.

Holy Spirit says it could take six to nine months before the merger is official.

“This is an important time in our 50-year history as we plan for our future,” said Sister Romaine Niemeyer, SCC, FACHE, Holy Spirit Health System President and Chief Executive Officer. “The Sisters of Christian Charity, in their sponsorship role, and the board of directors are committed to ensuring the mission-driven Catholic identity of Holy Spirit Health System.”

“Healthcare continues to evolve not only in south central Pennsylvania, but throughout the United States, and we are always open to exploring ways to improve care and best serve the community,” said Geisinger Health System President and Chief Executive Officer Glenn Steele, Jr., MD, PhD. “Forward thinking organizations such as Holy Spirit and Geisinger proactively work toward enhancing care, and that is what we are now considering together.”

Holy Spirit participates in the Geisinger Health Plan provider network.

“Geisinger brings a proven record of similar successful ventures, an affiliated insurance plan and nationally acclaimed patient-centered care to complement Holy Spirit’s strong presence in the greater Harrisburg area, and the reputation for both quality and caring," said Sister Romaine.
