We announced our exploration of a possible alignment of ministries with Dignity Health in October 2016, and we anticipated having a decision by early 2017. However, there are many elements to a potential alignment, and multiple people and organizations are involved in the discussions. Our leaders are working closely with our Board of Stewardship Trustees and are meeting with representatives from our participating congregations and key Catholic Bishops.
We’re now in the final stages of due diligence, which needs to be complete before a decision is made. We continue to be optimistic about combining our ministries – we believe that together, we have the potential to advance the transformation of health care in the U.S.
We’ll provide more updates soon. Thanks to everyone for your support as our leaders continue to work through this important process.
