WILLIAMSPORT – Geisinger and a New Jersey health system are splitting but say they plan to maintain a relationship. An agreement in principle was announced Tuesday by which Geisinger no longer will be the parent organization of AtlantiCare Health System Inc. Geisinger also announced it had withdrawn its suit filed in January in U.S. Middle District Court aimed at preventing AtlantiCare from terminating an integration agreement that had been in effect since 2014. Judge Matthew W. Brann on Monday formally dismissed the suit in which AtlantiCare was accused of violating the agreement by voting to disassociate from Geisinger. Also defendants were AtlantiCare’s chairman Michael Charlton and CEO Lori Herndon. Full story
