Geisinger of Anville, Pa., no longer serves as AtlantiCare’s parent organization effective Oct. 31., per an announcement from the Atlantic County health system on Nov. 2.
The organizations have worked to ensure a seamless transition from their previous relationship since plans for their formal separation were announced March 31. The separation is expected to have no impact on patients, patient care, employees, facilities and the local communities served by the respective health systems.
Both health care systems will continue their collaboration on the Atlantic City campus of the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.
“Finalizing the separation of our organizations best positions us to continue providing high-quality health care services in the respective communities we serve in Pennsylvania and New Jersey,” the organizations said in a joint formal statement. “We are grateful to all who have supported this mutual agreement, which preserves both organizations’ long-term success and allows for the most appropriate use of our nonprofit, charitable resources for many years to come.”
