Brawley, California - After Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District and Scripps Health entered into a landmark affiliation agreement in late 2015, both organizations will be hosting a press conference to formally mark Pioneers joining the Scripps Health Network Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at Pioneer’s Walker Auditorium. Pioneers Memorial now can refer to itself as an affiliate of the Scripps Health Network in its marketing materials.

Under the signed affiliation agreement, Pioneers continues to run as an independent hospital and will not change its name or current governance structure. The affiliation agreement has assisted Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District with the tools hospitals and health systems today need in order to provide value to patients through continuous quality improvement and enhanced care for its patients.
