There are lots of details to be worked out in the blending of the 117-bed community hospital in Portage County into the healthcare giant that is the second largest employer in Northeast Ohio. Things like the financials, board make-up and what happens to other partnerships Robinson has now, including one with Akron Children's Hospital, should be resolved by May.

Stephen Colecchi has been with Robinson since 1985 and its president since 1994. He says University Hospitals was Robinson’s best chance to survive and grow.

Looked at uh: “We took a very close look at the community hospitals that have been part of University Hospital’s health system. And all of those community hospitals have flourished under the UH umbrella. The mission of poviding healthcare in the local communities is certainly consistent with our mission.”

University Hospitals completed the mergers of Parma Community General and Elyica Healthcare into the system on Jan. 1.
