FTC Files Request in Ohio District Court for Information on St. Luke's, ProMedica Merger

The Federal Trade Commission has refilled an emergency petition in a U.S. District Court in Toledo, Ohio, for information surrounding the merger of Maumee, Ohio-based St. Luke's Hospital with Toledo-based ProMedica Health System, according to a Toledo Blade report.

The merger was announced in May and finalized Aug. 31. However, the deal is under a "hold-separate" with the FTC in place until Oct. 30, which means that the hospital and health system must delay integration until the end of the month, unless the FTC approves it prior to that date.

The FTC previously filed an emergency petition for responses to investigative subpoenas and civil investigative demands for information on the merger in U.S. District Court in Washington, but that court ruled earlier this week it was not the appropriate court to decide the case.

The FTC claimed it did not receive requested information about the merger and filed the emergency order in response. St. Luke's and ProMedica claim they are working to respond to the requests, but did not receive a written request for information until the date the FTC said it was due.
