THE RECORD

Hackensack University Medical Center and its parent company have signed a definitive agreement with Meridian Health to merge the two systems to merge, a deal that will create the state’s largest hospital network.

The new organization, to be called Hackensack Meridian Health, will employ more than 23,000 people and have more than $3.4 billion in revenues, eclipsing Barnabas Health, currently the state’s largest health care system.

The deal, which is undergoing regulatory review, will create a system with 11 hospitals and two children’s hospitals from Bergen to Ocean counties and a large network of outpatient services, including surgery centers, rehab facilities and cancer care.

“This will be a game changer in health care,” said Robert C. Garrett, president and CEO of Hackensack University Health Network.
