St. Vincent Health System is absorbing a Mercy Health hospital and physicians clinic in Hot Springs.

The deal announced Tuesday will have the Hot Springs properties operate as part of a regional network and will carry the name St. Vincent Hot Springs.

St. Vincent said in a news release that the transaction came about because of the state's challenging health care climate and as a way to increase access to people who need health care.
