Advocate Children's, NorthShore University HealthSystem to partner: 3 takeaways

Oak Lawn, Ill.-based Advocate Children's Hospital and Evanston, Ill.-based NorthShore University HealthSystem announced their intent to form a strategic partnership to expand pediatric care statewide May 16.

Here are three things to know about the collaboration.

1. The goal of the alliance is to create a comprehensive system of pediatric care for residents across the state, and will comprise 600 pediatricians as well as hospital and ambulatory programs and services.

2. The organizations will share governance and financial responsibilities for the partnership, which will be led by Advocate Children's Hospital President Mike Farrell and co-CMOs Frank Belmonte, DO, and Michael Caplan, MD, from Advocate Children's and NorthShore, respectively.

3. Officials will begin the transition and integration processes during the next few months. They expect to launch the delivery network in July 2018.

"This is about providing exceptional pediatric care for the children in our communities," said Mr. Farrell. "By linking together such high caliber physicians, committed to excellence in safety, quality and service, we will no doubt make it easier to access comprehensive medical care. That's good for children, their families and communities."
