Partnership Process Update from Dr. Wayne Hockmeyer

While this continues to be the “quiet period,” Indian River Medical Center, the Indian River County Hospital District and Cleveland Clinic are proceeding with the partnership process as expected. All parties continue to work toward a definitive agreement and anticipate that we can provide information at an August presentation. We have been very diligent at every step in the process and although it has taken a considerable amount of time to get to this point, the projected timeframe has only shifted slightly.  Please realize all the parties are working collaboratively and are focused on achieving a successful outcome for our community.

Once approved by the Board of Directors for IRMC and the Board of Trustees for IRCHD, regulatory re­view will begin immediately. We have made great progress and appreciate your support.
