St. Mary’s Leavng Ascension

Officials with St. Mary’s Healthcare announce the organization is leaving the nonprofit Ascension Healtcare Systems. CEO Vic Giulianelli tells the Recorder that the decision was made after determining St. Mary’s made more financial contributions to Ascension than they got back in benefits. St. Mary’s will leave Ascension on June 30 and will return to an independent operation as it was nearly two decades ago.
