Sixth Circuit Decision Highlights Importance of Antitrust Considerations in Health Care Consolidation Planning
Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP Link to more items from this source
Apr. 22, 2014
"Finding that the merger would increase ProMedica's pricing and bargaining power in an already compressed market without creating any procompetitive efficiencies to offset these anticompetitive effects ... the administrative law judge ordered ProMedica to divest St. Luke's.... The Sixth Circuit [on April 22] concurred ... Coupled with the recent decision ... which ordered the complete divestiture of an Idaho hospital's acquisition of a large physician group following a similar challenge by the FTC, [this] decision reinforces the FTC's continuing focus on the health care industry and highlights the crucial importance of antitrust considerations and analysis in the evolving health care marketplace. " [ProMedica Health System, Inc. v. Federal Trade Commission, No. 12-3583 (6th Cir. Apr. 22, 2014)]
