Advocate Aurora Health, with 28 hospitals in Illinois and Wisconsin, and the eight-hospital Beaumont Health in Michigan have reportedly been exploring a potential partnership. The two organizations have signed a non-binding letter of intent “that paves the way to deeper discussions,” Advocate and Aurora said Wednesday.
Executive leadership from both organizations say that while talks are in early stages, the partnership under exploration would allow both not-for-profit health providers to strengthen and align their purposes of serving the needs of individuals, families and communities throughout the Upper Midwest.
“Beaumont Health has built a strong reputation for clinical excellence, education and research. This is a unique opportunity to explore a partnership with a like-minded, purpose-driven organization,” said Jim Skogsbergh, president and CEO, Advocate Aurora Health.
Advocate Aurora and Beaumont began discussions at the end of 2019. However, they paused negotiations to allow both organizations to focus on COVID-19.
