Orlando Health has Acquired Two Hospitals from Community Health Systems

October 14, 2020

Orlando Health, a leading not-for-profit integrated health system providing care across the full spectrum of healthcare services to patients throughout central Florida, has completed the acquisition of both the 480-bed Bayfront Health St. Petersburg and the 84-bed St. Cloud Regional Medical Center from Community Health Systems (“CHS”, NYSE: CYH).

The combination of these two acquisitions continues the expansion of Orlando Health’s footprint throughout central and now, western, Florida and further positions it as a leader in healthcare across the state.

Acquisition of Bayfront Health St. Petersburg

On September 30, 2020, Orlando Health completed the acquisition of Bayfront Health St. Petersburg and its free-standing emergency department in Pinellas Park. This acquisition marks Orlando Health’s entry into the western Florida market.

Acquisition of St. Cloud Regional Medical Center

On June 30, 2020, Orlando Health acquired full ownership of St. Cloud Regional Medical Center. Prior to the transaction, Orlando Health and CHS maintained a joint venture partnership in St. Cloud Regional Medical Center. Since closing, Orlando Health has renamed the hospital Orlando Health St. Cloud Hospital and has fully incorporated it into the organization’s network.
