Sale Is Complete – Hospital Is Renamed – Lake Huron Medical Center
As of today, September 1, St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron will now be called Lake Huron Medical Center. It was announced this week that the Prime Healthcare Services have completed the purchase of the hospital from Trinity Health. The hospital opened its doors sixty one years ago in 1954, by the Sisters of Mercy. The sale was announced last November, and reports say the sale price was $17.5 million. Rebekah Smith, president and chief executive officer of the institution, says the sale opens a new chapter for the hospital. Prime Healthcare Services plan to make some $20 million in capital improvements in the next three years, and are offering employment to all current employees. The People’s Clinic for Better Health will see at least $150,000 annually from Prime Heathcare, in addition to money necessary for the clinic’s operations, which is expected to continue to operate locally. Other St. Joseph Mercy based facilities will see names changes as well.
