Covenant Health to Acquire Lea Regional Medical Center
In Fall 2019, Covenant Health announced plans to build a hospital in Hobbs, and now it's being announced that an agreement has been signed to acquire existing facilities at Lea Regional Medical Center.
Covenant Health says they're excited about the opportunity to make a more immediate impact in the community. They say they remain steadfast in their commitment to provide quality heal care for patients in eastern New Mexico.
Dan Springer, Lea Regional Medical Center CEO, said:
Covenant Health's acquisition of Lea Regional Medical Center gives them an immediate, local presence providing inpatient hospital services as part of their commitment to this area. Our caregivers will become part of their organization and Hobbs residents will benefit from continuous access to local healthcare.
Regional Chief Executive of Covenant Health Richard Parks said:
Our commitment to eastern New Mexico has never been stronger. We look forward to extending our comprehensive health network to the Hobbs community and are honored to serve alongside our neighbors and friends.
