No changes recommended to how Mission does business

The state has not recommended any changes be made to how Mission hospital does business under its Certificate of Public Advantage, or anti-trust regulations that govern this regional healthcare leader.

The regulations date to Mission’s merger with St. Joseph’s 15 years ago.

“This was music to our ears,” said Ronald A. Paulus, Mission Health’s president and CEO. “The committee acknowledged the complicated and important nature of the COPA and noted that it warranted further study.”

Mission noted that more than 10,100 letters had been sent electronically as part of a letter-writing campaign on the issue to political leaders.
