TULSA, Oklahoma -- Hillcrest HealthCare System has signed an agreement to buy the assets and operations of two Green Country hospitals.

Southcrest Hospital in south Tulsa and Claremore Regional Hospital, as well as their affiliated medical groups, will become part of the Hillcrest family when the deal closes later this summer.

"We're excited to welcome SouthCrest and Claremore Regional to the Hillcrest family of hospitals," said Kevin J. Gross, CEO of HHS and Oklahoma Division president of Ardent Health Services. "This acquisition creates an immediate and significant presence for us in the fast-growing and competitive south Tulsa County.

"It will increase access to important health care services for Hillcrest and SouthCrest patients, as well as provide closer specialized care to residents of Rogers County," Gross added.

Terms of the agreement are not being released.

When the purchase is finalized, Hillcrest HealthCare System will include six hospitals, more than 1,100 doctors and more than 5,000 employees.
