Advocate Health Care Adds Silver Cross Hospital as Affiliate

Silver Cross Hospital, a 289-bed facility located in New Lenox, Ill., has signed a clinical affiliation agreement with Downers Grove, Ill.-based Advocate Health Care.

Under the deal, Silver Cross will integrate with Advocate Physician Partners, which is Advocate's physician-led care management group. More than 4,400 physicians are part of APP, which holds the triple aim goal of population health management, better care and reduced costs.

The partnership is not a merger or acquisition. Advocate President and CEO Jim Skogsbergh said in a news release the deal is an "opportunity to share our experience with another healthcare system while extending access to our evidence-based programs."
