Statement from Advocate Health Care and NorthShore University HealthSystem

10/31/2016

We are disappointed in today’s ruling that reverses U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Alonso’s decision in favor of our merger and remands the case back for further review and consideration. We believe that blocking this merger will be a loss to consumers and further underscores the conflicting message with the objectives of the Affordable Care Act. While our legal teams review the decision, we remain confident our merger would lower costs and improve outcomes for consumers.
