St. Joseph Medical Center seeks ‘strategic relationship’

St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson has issued a request for proposals to “a select group of Maryland health care systems,” asking for written responses within 30 days on establishing a “strategic relationship” with the 263-bed hospital.

Such an arrangement, St. Joseph officials said in a release, would “enhance the quality of care and breadth of services to the people and communities that” both parties serve. The release did not identify the health care systems invited to participate.

Officials estimate the process will take from six to 12 months to complete, including evaluating responses, interviewing respondents and negotiating a strategic relationship arrangement.
