Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare divested a Chicago-area hospital and sold its minority interest in four Texas hospitals.
Tenet completed the sale of MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, Ill., and its local physician practices to Chicago-based Loyola Medicine, which is part of Livonia, Mich.-based Trinity Health. MacNeal Hospital includes 374 acute care beds, a 12-bed rehabilitation unit, a 25-bed inpatient skilled nursing facility and a 68-bed behavioral health program.
“We look forward to serving a greater number of patients through our expanded delivery network, thanks to the resources, providers and value-added care made possible by adding MacNeal Hospital and its physicians to our system,” Larry M. Goldberg, president and CEO of Loyola Medicine and Trinity Health’s Illinois region, said in a statement.
Tenet also announced the completion of several other deals on Feb. 2. The company sold its minority interest in Baylor Scott & White-Centennial in Frisco, Texas, and Baylor Scott & White-Lake Pointe in Rowlett, Texas, to Dallas-based Baylor Scott & White Health. The company transferred its minority interest in Baylor Scott & White-Sunnyvale (Texas) to Texas Health Ventures Group, which is a joint venture between Tenet’s United Surgical Partners International subsidiary and Baylor Scott & White Health. Tenet also sold its minority interest in Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-White Rock in Dallas to Pipeline Health, a hospital management company based in Manhattan Beach, Calif.
Tenet ended the fourth quarter of 2017 with a net loss of $230 million, compared to a net loss of $79 million in the same period of the year prior. To improve its financial position, Tenet launched a $250 million cost reduction initiative last year, which involves divesting hospitals in non-core markets and cutting 2,000 jobs, or about 2 percent of the company’s workforce.
Tenet’s hospital divestiture plan is expected to yield more than $1 billion of proceeds. In the first quarter of 2018, Tenet received $550 million of cash proceeds from the divestiture of MacNeal Hospital, the sale of its minority interest in the Texas hospitals and the sale of two hospitals in Philadelphia.
