Cabell Huntington Hospital & St Mary's Medical Center complete merger

HUNTINGTON, WV (WOWK) - It's been four years in the making, but the merger between Cabell Huntington Hospital and St Mary's Medical Center is complete.

It's been just a little more than a month since the Pallottine Sisters announced they received Vantican approval for the acquisition. With that approval, St Mary's will keep its name and continue to be a Catholic-affiliated healthcare facility.

Cabell Huntington Hospital officials have said bringing the two hospitals together into a single system will allow for better healthcare for generations to come. 

There was opposition along the way, including Steel of West Virginia, who said it would create a healthcare monopoly.

The process progressed nonetheless. 

Today at Cabell Huntington Hosptial at 3 PM is the official announcement, and what steps the Hosptial will take next to be what it says is a comprehensive healthcare system.
