Chicago area’s Rush, Lit­tle Com­pany of Mary in deal to merge

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - — Kris­ten Schorsch, Crain’s Chicago Busi­ness

Lit­tle Com­pany of Mary Hos­pi­tal & Health Care Cen­ters has signed a let­ter of in­tent to join Rush, the Chicago-based aca­demic hub that’s been look­ing to bulk up.

The deal, which must be ap­proved by state reg­u­la­tors, would shrink the num­ber of stand-alone hospitals in the re­gion even more.

Lit­tle Com­pany is a small, long­time Catholic or­ga­ni­za­tion that’s been search­ing for a part­ner. The hos­pi­tal will re­main Catholic, while Rush’s three other hospitals will re­main sec­u­lar. Ear­lier this year, Rush re­branded to of­fi­cially op­er­ate as one aca­demic health sys­tem.
