Officials at a Southern California health care company say they’ve finalized their purchase of Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center in Reno.
Prime Healthcare Services officials announced Sunday they’d purchased the 380-bed hospital from Dignity Health, formerly known as Catholic Healthcare West.
The hospital will keep its name and preserve its Catholic heritage, and the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael will continue with the hospital’s Spiritual Care Services. The new owners say Prime CEO Prem Reddy has paid $1 million for the sisters’ convent and will lease it back to them at no cost.
Prime is based in Ontario, Calif., and owns 17 hospitals, mostly in California.
