Michael Fine, M.D., director of the Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH), has announced that HEALTH has rendered two decisions that will affect the acquisition of Landmark Medical Center and the Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island by Steward Health Care System, LLC.

HEALTH approved both the Change In Effective Control application, which was recommended for approval earlier this month by the Health Services Council, and the Hospital Conversions application. HEALTH approved both applications with conditions.

“In evaluating these applications, HEALTH was charged with considering the totality of the evidence, as well as the needs of the people of Woonsocket,” said Dr. Fine. “HEALTH staff worked hard to thoroughly review these applications quickly and efficiently to keep this process moving along. After extensive review of the evidence, HEALTH determined that Steward adequately met the criteria for approval of its applications.”
