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.
