Rockwood-Deaconess vote set Dec. 23

Rockwood Clinic physicians are poised to boost patient numbers at Deaconess Medical Center and inject a fresh dose of competition with Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Community Health objects to suit

The company that owns Deaconess Medical Center contends that a lawsuit filed against it last month by Spokane-based Inland Northwest Health Services should be tossed out by a judge. The lawsuit centers on the disputed ownership of a license used to maintain INHS’ electronic medical records network.

Sacred Heart’s CEO blasts Rockwood

Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center’s chief executive charged Rockwood Clinic’s leaders with bad-faith dealings and ethical lapses the day after Rockwood stunned Spokane’s medical community by announcing it would align with Sacred Heart’s main rival. “It is clear to us that the interim leadership of Rockwood is leading the Rockwood physicians down a very dangerous path fueled purely by profit motive,” said Sacred Heart CEO Dr. Andrew Agwunobi.

Rockwood agrees to sale

Community Health Systems Inc., the owner of Deaconess Medical Center, has struck a deal to buy the Rockwood Clinic, the Inland Northwest’s largest specialty medical provider. Terms of the deal were not announced Tuesday, but the transaction is expected to shake up the region’s health care industry as more of the venerable clinic’s 160,000 patients a year are likely to be steered to Deaconess and to Spokane Valley Hospital for further care rather than the competing Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.
