To clarify this week's story in The Crittenden Press about a possible partnership between Crittenden Health Systems and Baptist Health that would turn over management of the local ambulance sevice to the health care giant, the ambulances would be transferred into the name of Baptist Health. However, the vehicles would remain based in Crittenden County and retain local branding alongside that of Baptist Health. The local hospital would still own the EMS, but Baptist's management would include billing and staffing. Losses or profits would be share by the two health care systems.
