It is a big step forward for the merger of Rochester General and Unity Health Systems. Both have filed the necessary paperwork to combine the two organizations and become one unified system.
Being a new non-profit health system, it will be governed by a board of volunteer community and business leaders. The group will be announced and hold its first meeting on July 9.
Both health systems believe combining their services can better meet the needs of the community.
