University President Christina Paxson announced in a letter to the Brown campus community on Jan. 11 Brown’s proposal to join with Prospect Medical Holdings to enter merger discussions with the Care New England Health System.
Paxson outlined an alternative to the acquisition currently being considered by Boston-based Partners Healthcare. The Brown-Prospect alternative would create an integrated academic health system with local healthcare systems that would keep healthcare in Rhode Island, along with its economic benefits.
