Relationship between Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers (PHC) and Amanda Luckett Murphy Hopewell Center (Hopewell)

On January 1, 2010, Hopewell’s Articles of Incorporation were amended. That amendment resulted in Hopewell becoming a Missouri nonprofit corporation having members, with PHC as the sole member. Hopewell is now an affiliate of PHC and PHC has the power to appoint and remove members of the Hopewell Board of Directors. Hopewell is still the same corporation and remains a separate Missouri nonprofit corporation. Hopewell retains its status as an IRC Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Because Hopewell has remained a separate corporation, Hopewell continues to be solely liable for its debts and obligations. PHC has not assumed, nor does it have any liability for, Hopewell’s debts or obligations. In addition, on October 14, 2009 and in anticipation of their affiliation, PHC and Hopewell executed an Interim Management Agreement under which PHC has been providing general financial management services to Hopewell. As of January 1, 2010, those services expanded to include the administrative management of Hopewell. Hopewell remains an administrative agent of DMH.
