Alexian Brothers Health System (ABHS) of Arlington Heights, Ill., and Loyola University Health System (Loyola) of Maywood, Ill., are partnering to expand the breadth and reach of their pediatric service lines in the Chicago area.
This new affiliation will benefit patients by building on and expanding the clinical program strengths of each health system, making them more available to the communities we serve, says Patricia Cassidy, ABHS Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer.
The affiliation will enable ABHS and Loyola to offer a comprehensive array of pediatric specialties and will increase access to pediatric sub-specialists, who often can be hard to find, Cassidy says.
"Access to high-quality pediatric clinical programs in a coordinated network of care is a vision both of our organizations share, says Daniel Post, Senior Vice President, Clinical Programs, and Chief Business Development Officer, at Loyola. The Loyola and Alexian Brothers Pediatric Affiliation will provide patients and referring physicians improved access to these high-quality programs in their communities.
