(WXYZ) - Beaumont Health System, Botsford Health Care and Oakwood Healthcare have officially completed their affiliation agreement and combined operations as Beaumont Health.
The new organization has received state and federal regulatory approval and have begun operation under the new name as of today.
All three health care organizations announced their intention to combine in March and an agreement was reached in June.
Teams will now work to complete the integration of the three organizations under the Beaumont Health name.
