The move is like what was done at the Greenfield Hospital in 1999.
Adena Heath System is taking over the reins of the Pike Heath System, this announcement coming from the Pike Community Hospital Wednesday.
Jeff Graham Chief Strategy Officer of Adena Heath System, stated "Adena has a relationship with Greenfield similar to what they are starting in Pike. Greenfield joined Adena in 1999 to create the Adena Greenfield Medical, a center that has been recently recognized as the second most profitable critical access hospital in the United States.
Pike Community Hospital will have access to capital investments, more state of the art treatment and care, and the opportunity for Pike's employees to make career advancements, and receive additional training.
