Beth Israel Deaconess, Signature affiliation deal moves closer

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and its doctors group, which last summer entered into exclusive talks to affiliate with Signature Healthcare of Brockton, have signed a memorandum of understanding with Signature, which owns 263-bed Brockton Hospital.

The memorandum was disclosed in an e-mail to Beth Israel Deaconess employees Thursday from Kevin Tabb, CEO of the Harvard-affiliated Boston hospital, and Stuart Rosenberg, president of its Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians group.


Tabb and Rosenberg said they hope to reach a definitive agreement soon with Signature and its 150-doctor Signature Medical Group.

“Signature Healthcare is a high quality community health care provider, the type of partner we embrace as vital to our growing network of hospitals and physicians,” they wrote. “Signing the [memorandum] is an important next step on our path of working with community health care providers to deliver the right care in the right place at the right time.”
