Both sides mulling next move in hospital acquisition challenge

Albany Herald, February 26, 2013
Neither the Federal Trade Commission nor Phoebe Putney Health System is stating yet what its next move might be following a ruling last week from the U.S. Supreme Court, but indications are that the matter is not over yet. In a slip opinion released Feb. 19, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Georgia had not clearly articulated and affirmatively expressed a policy to allow hospital authorities to make acquisitions that substantially lessen competition. With the ruling, the high court reversed a lower court ruling and effectively sided with the FTC in its ongoing challenge of the acquisition of Palmyra Medical Center.
