Breaking: Goodbye Good Sam

It's been just a couple of weeks since we learned that Premier Health and United Healthcare had buried the proverbial hatchet; now we learn that the former is cutting loose what seems to have become quite the financial albatross:

"Good Samaritan Hospital, the fourth-largest hospital in the Dayton region, will close."

Premier Health appears to be streamlining its facility offerings, in line with its self-proclaimed "2020 strategic plan." The company says that Good Sam's services will still be available, just moved over to Miami Valley Hospital (about 5 miles, or 14 minutes, away). How that will work out is, of course, anyone's guess.

Stay tuned...
