City of El Centro Enters Exclusive Talks with Scripps Health for El Centro Regional Medical Center Affiliation
Affiliation to Improve Health Care Quality and Access in Imperial Valley 
 
EL CENTRO, Calif. – The City of El Centro today announced the execution of an exclusive negotiating agreement with Scripps Health, a private, nonprofit health system in San Diego, California. This 90-day agreement begins exclusive negotiations for the possible acquisition and management of El Centro Regional Medical Center (ECRMC) by Scripps.
 
In May, the City Council voted unanimously to seek an affiliation partner for ECRMC to elevate the quality of local health care by enhancing services and increasing access points for care in the Imperial Valley, and to eliminate any future liability for the city.  
 
“El Centro Regional Medical Center has a long and successful history of serving the health care needs of El Centro and the Imperial Valley,” said Chris Van Gorder, Scripps President and CEO.  “With all the changes occurring in health care now, Scripps is in a unique position to help El Centro continue that tradition. We look forward to productive discussions toward that end.”
 
“After reaching out to more than 30 organizations as part of our exploration, we are pleased to be entering this next phase with Scripps Health,” said David Green, Chief Executive Officer of ECRMC. “Their mission and values align with the mission and values of El Centro Regional Medical Center, and we feel that together the city, the hospital, and most importantly, patients will greatly benefit from this affiliation.”
