Illinois-based Advocate Health Care to buy a stake in RML Specialty Hospital
Chicago Tribune, March 27, 2009
Illinois-based Advocate Health Care plans to buy a stake in RML Specialty Hospital, a long-term care facility in Hinsdale owned and operated jointly by Rush University Medical Center and Loyola University Medical Center. The three medical centers also confirmed that they have started talks to expand Rush and Loyola's long-term care partnership to Advocate's Bethany Hospital in Chicago's West Side. Advocate, the Chicago area's largest provider of medical care with nine hospitals, converted Bethany to a long-term care facility from a community hospital in 2006. Executives say a partnership with Rush and Loyola will allow Bethany to be a part of the two academic medical centers' teaching and research missions.
