MENDOTA (WIFR) -- OSF could likely be picking up another healthcare partner. Mendota Community Hospital has signed a letter of intent to join OSF.
The two have already collaborated for many years. Mendota's interim CEO says this will give the hospital financial stability along with access to more specialty services.
The next steps include the due diligence process, developing a definitive agreement, and applying for a Certificate of Exemption for a change of ownership with the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board all of which are expected to be completed later this year.
