OKLAHOMA CITY - Integris Health owns a majority of Lakeside Women's Hospital after the two companies finalized an agreement Monday.
Leaders from both hospitals say they've discussed the purchase for about five years and would not disclose how much Integris paid for its 75 percent share of Lakeside.
Dr. Debbie Huff, one of Lakeside's founding doctors, said health care continues to grow more complex, and a “copartnership” with Integris gives Lakeside a more stable future.
“There is a lot of uncertainty in health care, and with the uncertainty, the timing seemed right to merge with an entity that we felt we could collaborate with and still provide the type of care that we want to provide and collaborate with them as well,” Huff said. “We think it's a win-win solution for them as well as for us.”
