Another area hospital may be joining Penn Highlands Healthcare. J.C. Blair Health System and Penn Highlands announced today that they’ve signed a letter of intent to negotiate an affiliation. If all goes well, that partnership is expected to take effect early next year.
J.C. Blair says the move will allow it to grow and remain a major employer in the region.
J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital is located in Huntingdon. Penn Highlands Healthcare is comprised of Penn Highlands Brookville, Penn Highlands Clearfield, Penn Highlands DuBois, and Penn Highland Elk.
