Illinois Again Rejects CHS' Bid to Build New Hospital

Listen

For the second time in three months, the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board rejected a bid from Vista Health System to build a new hospital in Lindenhurst, Ill., according to a Daily Herald report.

Community Health Systems, based in Franklin, Tenn., and owner of Vista Health System, wanted to build a 132-bed hospital in Lindenhurst, where Vista currently has an ambulatory care center.

The Illinois board denied the bid, which it previously had done in March, because it said a new hospital would create duplicative and unnecessary services in the area. Downers Grove, Ill.-based Advocate Health Care was the biggest opponent of the measure. One of its hospitals, Advocate Condell Medical Center, is in Libertyville, Ill., roughly 45 minutes away from Lindenhurst.
