Palos Health and Northwestern Medicine are set to finalize their merger agreement, which the two Chicago-area hospital systems reached earlier this year. All regulatory approvals have now been received and the merger is set to close on Jan. 1.
“We look forward to welcoming Palos Health to Northwestern Medicine,” said Dean M. Harrison, president and CEO, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare. “We will join the physicians and staff of Palos Health to provide convenient access to world-class care in the southwest suburbs.”
With Palos Health joining, Northwestern Medicine will offer care across Chicago at 11 hospitals and more than 200 ambulatory sites, provided by a combined workforce of more than 36,000 physicians, nurses and staff.
Palos Health CEO Terrence Moisan said, “As a part of Northwestern Medicine, we will be able to further develop and grow specialized services for our patients and community. We look forward to a bright future together.”
