Last month, Dallas-based Baylor Scott & White Health and Houston-based Memorial Hermann Health System called of their merger, which would have resulted in a 68-hospital system. That is one of several hospital mergers that, at some point in their lifetime, were called off in the past year.

Seven hospital mergers called off since March 2018, beginning with the most recent:

1. Centura Health, Community Hospital call off merger talks
Community Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., and Centura Health in Centennial, Colo., discontinued merger discussion in March, roughly four months after signing a letter of intent to combine their organizations. Although the organizations ended formal merger discussions, they remain open to exploring ways to partner in the future.

2. Illinois hospitals end merger talks
