BJC Healthcare buys site in Illinois
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 21, 2008
Progress East, an Illinois-based affiliate of BJC Healthcare, has bought a 111-acre property in Shiloh, IL. The hospital system has no plans for the site, but BJC described the purchase as a long-term investment that will allow it to be ready for growth in the area. The purchase comes after a yearlong analysis of the population trends and the accompanying demand for healthcare services.
