Alliance Community Hospital signs affiliation agreement with Aultman Health Foundation

June 21, 2017

The boards of Aultman Health Foundation and Alliance Citizens Health Association have signed a letter of intent designed to pave the way for Alliance Community Hospital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alliance Citizens Health Association, to become affiliated with the Aultman Health Foundation.

The affiliation, expected to take effect January 1, 2018, will combine a regional healthcare center with a community hospital in a continuum of care serving the residents of Stark County and beyond. This regional network will combine Aultman Health Foundation with its tertiary medical center and its nationally recognized health care plan AultCare, with Aultman Orrville, a critical access hospital, and Alliance Community Hospital, the only Planetree hospital in the state of Ohio.

“This agreement will allow Alliance Community Hospital to become part of one of the best-integrated healthcare systems in the Midwest, giving our patients improved access to important specialty care and advanced services,” said Stan Jonas, Alliance Community Hospital CEO. “We are joining forces with an organization we trust and highly respect. When we decided to look for a partner, although there were many other options, Aultman was our clear choice.”

Under the arrangement, Alliance Community Hospital will retain its name and will continue to operate and add services based on community need. The current management team and staff will remain in place. The Alliance Hospital board of trustees will have 14 members; seven members will be selected by the Alliance Citizens Health Association Board, and seven will be selected by the Aultman Health Foundation Board. This board structure will give Alliance Hospital an equal voice in how the hospital will serve the Alliance community.
