State approves Proctor, UnityPoint Health-Methodist merger
An affiliation agreement between UnityPoint Health-Methodist and Proctor Hospital gets state approval. The Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board approved the deal. That allows both groups to form one health system. The merger follows a failed set of contract talks between OSF Health System and Proctor. More information on the deal is expected later this week.
