Healthcare reform law played role in merger between IHA, St. Joseph Mercy Health System

AnnArbor.com, October 7, 2010

Bill Fileti, CEO of Ann Arbor-based Integrated Healthcare Associates, wants to make sure Michigan doesn’t become Massachusetts.

“If you watched the Massachusetts experience, when they went to universal health care, volumes skyrocketed and waiting time grew exponentially,” he said. “That’s not an outcome that we want here in our community.”

With that in mind, IHA said Tuesday that it had agreed to a merger with

Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, which will operate IHA as a subsidiary, maintaining IHA’s 150 physicians, 700 other employees and 32 offices in four counties.
