MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - A transfer agreement between the Memorial Hospital Association and Via Christi Health has fully joined Mercy Regional Health Center in Manhattan with Via Christi.

As part of the agreement, the MHA will form a non-profit foundation to assist with improving health care services in Riley County, including programs for the poor and vulnerable, funded with an estimated $7 million from the sale of Mercy’s Sunset campus to Kansas State University.

Via Christi has agreed to provide $15.5 million in capital to fund the expansion of outpatient services in the north tower at Mercy’s facility on College Avenue and other improvements as needed.

Mercy Regional Health Center will be renamed Via Christi Hospital later in 2014.
