Blessing Health System announced Wednesday that it is acquiring the Hannibal Clinic.

A sales agreement for Blessing to purchase the clinic will take effect January 2nd.

The purchase includes all the physical assets of the Hannibal Clinic, with the four satellite clinics in Monroe City, Palmyra, Center and Bowling Green coming under the Blessing Health System umbrella.

Blessing and the Hannibal Clinic have been affiliated for about a year, so officials say they expect the transfer of ownership to be “pretty seamless.”

The clinic employs about 300 people, and none of those is expected to be affected by the ownership change.
