Sint Anna and Catharina hospital merger axed

A proposed merger between the St. Anna Hospital in Geldrop and Eindhoven’s Catharina Hospital has been scrapped, the hospitals said in a statement.

The statement confirms a recent decision by The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets. The watchdog believes that a merger would give the new hospital an unfair market advantage in the Eindhoven region.

‘Unfortunately we needed to decide to stop the merger’, Ingrid Wolf-de Jonge, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the St. Anna Care Group, says. However, both organizations have expressed a willingness to continue to cooperate intensively in the future.
