Area Health Care Providers Announce Plans to Integrate Services
Date:9/6/2007

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The sponsors of two of Pittsburgh's finest long term care providers have announced their intention to bring their organizations together within one health care system. Today, the Sisters of the Holy Spirit and the Vincentian Sisters of Charity announced that they will integrate Marian Manor Corporation, a 186-bed not for profit long term care facility operated by the Sisters of the Holy Spirit, into the Vincentian Collaborative System (VCS), a multi-institutional long term care provider operated by the Vincentian Sisters of Charity.

Sister Bridget Miller, Major Superior of the Sisters of the Holy Spirit of Pittsburgh, said, "After a long period of reflection on the future of health care delivery in this region and always within the context of offering the best care for our residents and their families, our congregation and our board decided that becoming an integral part of the Vincentian Collaborative System will best allow us to continue our mission and long heritage of quality care and dedicated service to the people of western Pennsylvania."

Sister Charlene Reebel, Major Superior of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity, said, "We welcome this opportunity to associate with a dedicated and caring organization such as Marian Manor. This integration means that we will all grow together in the future, enabling and strengthening our combined mission of service to the community in the areas of long term care and child development. Ten years ago we brought our three facilities together because we knew of the advantages that would accrue to each. Today we continue on this path so as to assure that mission-based and Catholic-based long term care and child development will continue to be available to the people of western Pennsylvania."

Marian Manor and Vincentian Collaborative System are now in the process of finalizing the formal agreements that will be presented to the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the state Attorney General's Office. It is expected that government approvals will take at least 90 days before the two organizations can begin the tasks of integration.

Marian Manor, located on 26 acres bordering the borough of Green Tree in the City of Pittsburgh, has provided quality and compassionate care to the community for over 50 years. It is a fully accredited 186 bed not for profit long-term care facility providing a range of services that includes personal care, intermediate and skilled services, and a special Alzheimer's unit. They also operate the Marian Manor Child Development and Learning Center on the campus.

Vincentian Collaborative System (VCS) is the parent corporation for several subsidiaries which include three long term care facilities: Vincentian Home, Vincentian Regency, Vincentian de Marillac, Vincentian Rehabilitation Services, Vincentian Child Development Center, and the Vincentian Foundation. VCS also manages Mount Macrina Manor in Uniontown.

The sponsors, the boards of trustees and the administration of the two organizations look forward with enthusiasm to this new relationship which will enhance the care of those persons with long term needs as well as the needs of families with young children who participate in the child development centers.
