UnityPoint Health-Methodist and Proctor are looking ahead after they received final approval to combine. Proctor is now part of the UnityPoint Health system as well as its physicians, various clinics, and services. That includes the Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery and the Hult Center for Healthy Living.

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. 

Two area hospitals are being recognized for attaining and sustaining excellence in the ways they treat certain medical conditions.
