Lake County, IL, hospital expansion plan rejected

Chicago Tribune, April 9, 2008

The Illinois health planning board rejected proposals made by Vista Health Systems and Advocate Health Care to to build hospitals in Lindenhurst, IL, and near Round Lake. The Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board issued an "intent to deny" to the applications, saying Lake County has too many hospital beds already. Vista Health asked approval for a three-story, 140-bed hospital in Lindenhurst, and Advocate Health asked to build a 144-bed hospital in the Round Lake area.
