PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Pikeville Medical Center says it will join the Mayo Clinic Care Network.

The Associated Press reports that the network connects doctors with Mayo Clinic specialists for diagnosis, therapy and care management through an online information system.

Joining the Mayo network is a collaboration, not an acquisition or merger.

The Pikeville center is a 261-bed hospital that is undergoing a $150 million expansion. It employs more than 2,300 people.

The eastern Kentucky hospital is the second medical center in Kentucky to join the Mayo network. Saint Elizabeth Healthcare, a system with hospitals in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, also is a member.
