Federal judge blocks OSF-Rockford Health deal

Rockford Register Star, April 6, 2012

A federal judge in Rockford has granted an injunction that will temporarily halt OSF HealthCare’s acquisition of Rockford Health System. The FTC challenged the acquisition last fall, saying the deal would be anticompetitive and could potentially raise prices on health care services for residents. But the health systems say they can address federal health care reform changes and diminishing state and federal reimbursements more efficiently as one entity.
