A decision that will make Stonewall Jackson a subsidiary of Carilion Health System.

However, Stonewall Jackson Hospital will retain partial ownership. This will mean both entities will have input regarding the overall operations and strategic planning for the hospital.
The board of directors say it went through a lengthy process of considering various options.
But decided on Carilion Health System -- a move officials say will provide long term support for the hospital's mission as the community's health provider.
