Franciscan Health System and Harrison Medical Center to affiliate

Franciscan Health System in South Puget Sound, part of Catholic Health Initiatives, and Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton, with campuses in Bremerton and Silverdale, intend to affiliate.

Gale Robinette, spokesman for Franciscan, whose hospitals include St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, St. Clare Hosital in Lakewood, St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way and St. Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw, said the two are working on an arrangement in which Harrison, the largest private employer in Kitsap County, can remain secular.
