Tipton County Hospital leased by Clarian

Tipton County officials have unanimously approved leasing Tipton County Hospital to Indianapolis-based Clarian Health for 35 years.

Clarian has managed the hospital for 10 years in a relationship that feeds patients to the sprawling Clarian system and, for Tipton, offers medical expertise and muscle to negotiate with insurers.

Under the agreement, the county will continue to own the land and building, according to the Kokomo Tribune. The board will include two members representing Clarian and five who live or work in Tipton, which is between Noblesville and Kokomo.
