Robert Issai, DCHS president and CEO, said BlueMountain was the “strongest bidder who could provide the greatest long-term financial stability” for the system. It had not submitted a proposal when the system was for sale last year, but several members of the new Integrity Healthcare participated in the earlier process, said Nikels.

The Daughters of Charity opened their first hospital in California in 1858. Called Los Angeles Infirmary, it is now known as St. Vincent Medical Center. The other hospitals involved in the BlueMountain transaction are St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, O’Connor Hospital in San Jose, St. Louise Regional Hospital in Gilroy, Seton Medical Center in Daly City and Seton Coastside in Moss Beach.

The statewide DCHS Medical Foundation will also be included in the transaction.
