Lourdes Health System to Be Acquired by Another Health Care Network?

Last Edited:

Another health care network is looking into acquiring Lourdes Health System after Cooper University Health backed out of their bid to buy the hospitals.

Maxis Health System, an entity of Trinity Health, and Virtua Health have announced they have entered into a non-binding letter of intent regarding the possible acquisition by Virtua of the Lourdes Health System.

This includes Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden and the Lourdes Medical Center in Burlington County.

Officials say both parties hope that they will be able to complete this transaction, which has the potential to achieve great benefits for health care in South Jersey.

This decision comes after Cooper University Health terminated its letter of intent back in December following a comprehensive review of the acquisition.
