Mercy admits role fighting Einstein over Pennsylvania hospital

Philadelphia Inquirer, July 17, 2008

Mercy Health System has admitted that it financially backed zoning challenges by two neighborhood residents to Albert Einstein Healthcare Network's hospital project in Montgomery County, PA. Mercy Suburban Hospital is about two miles away from the proposed $300 million, 192-bed facility that Einstein and Montgomery Hospital want to build. Einstein recently filed an emergency motion seeking the power to question lawyers and their clients about the role of a lobbying firm that lists several hospitals, including Mercy, as clients.
