Becker’s Hospital Review: Ellis Medicine, St. Peter’s Take Step Toward Merger

Becker’s Hospital Review published an article on the Provider Transition Agreement signed between Ellis Medicine and St. Peter’s Health Partners.

Under the deal, 170 Ellis providers will become employees of St. Peter’s Health Partners Medical Associates.

This is a step toward full affiliation, the news release said. Their merger plans were put on hold in July because of Ellis’ financial struggles from COVID-19.

“As leaders in health care, we have to look ahead with a focus on what’s best for the long-term health of our communities,” Ellis Medicine CEO Paul Milton said. “The biggest threat to both Ellis and health care access in Schenectady is the departure of physicians from our community.

St. Peter’s and Ellis have proven that, together, we can have a meaningful impact on improving access to care.”
