Cincinnati-based Catholic Healthcare Partners has acquired Jewish Hospital, which will become part of CHP affiliate Mercy Health Partners of southwest Ohio.
It is the latest purchase for CHP, one of the largest nonprofit health care systems in the country and the largest in Ohio. It runs more than 100 facilities — including 29 hospitals — across five states. CHP has about $1.85 billion of total debt. Ponder & Co. was financial adviser to Jewish Hospital during the transaction.
