New joint venture in ownership of BSA Health System

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Baptist Community Services of Amarillo and Ardent Health Services of Nashville, Tennessee announced they have formed a new joint venture in the ownership and operation of BSA Health System.

The process took about 11 months, ending with the selection of Ardent out of over two dozen other national health organizations.

Within the next three years, you will see a 25 million dollar expansion of the BSA emergency room.

This expansion is much needed as the number of patients has increased by about 10% every year for the past five years.

Another 25 million dollars will be spent on the building of a new state-of-the art cancer clinical facility which will house the patient care services of the Harrington Cancer Center.

To improve the health system, 75 million dollars will be invested into BSA over the next five years.

Money will be used to bring additional services, new equipment and technology to our area.

Ardent will own 80% of the joint venture and BCS will own 20%.

The governance of the hospital will be half and half to ensure local representation.
