Edward, Elmhurst Announce Plans To Merge Into Integrated Health System

            The merger will also have many benefits including:

  • Improving coordination of care and quality in the region as Edward and Elmhurst Memorial medical staff share best practices and clinical protocols.
  • Building upon our relationships with affiliated and independent physicians.  Edward Medical Group and Elmhurst Memorial's affiliated practices including Elmhurst Clinic, LLC, will remain of key strategic importance as will hundreds of independent physicians at both entities including DuPage Medical Group practitioners.  We also plan to continue partnerships with other major physician groups such as Advocate Midwest Heart Specialists which has a large presence at Elmhurst and Edward.
  • Improving access to clinical services.  While Edward and Elmhurst each have a broad range of high-quality service offerings, we plan to complement and grow our service offerings and locations throughout the region in an efficient manner that best serves the needs of the community.
  • Becoming more efficient.  With shrinking reimbursement for hospitals, healthcare reform demands that we become more efficient to lower healthcare costs.

Founded in 1926, Elmhurst Memorial Hospital today is Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare, a comprehensive health system with multiple locations and services designed to enhance the health of the communities and customers served. In June 2011, Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare opened a new, 866,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art acute care hospital.
