Hearing Scheduled for FTC's Injunction Request of St. Luke's, ProMedica Merger

A hearing is scheduled this week to determine whether or not to grant the Federal Trade Commission's request for a preliminary injunction against the merger of St. Luke's Hospital in Maumee, Ohio, with Toledo, Ohio-based ProMedica Health System, according to a Toledo Blade report.

The FTC has claimed that the merger violates federal anti-trust regulations. If an injunction is granted, HIT and other projects would be suspended, and St. Luke's would have to reassume the liabilities ProMedica had pledged to cover, according to the report.

An administrative trial has been scheduled in the case for May 31 to determine if the merger would need to be dissolved permanently. This decision, however, could be appealed.
