Northwestern Memorial Healthcare continues their reach west by recently partnering with DeKalb-based KishHealth System. This deal comes about a year after Northwestern combined with Cadence Health system based out of Winfield, IL. The move with KishHealth will provide the smaller two hospital system with additional resources to better serve the patient base in DeKalb County and its surrounding areas.
This continues the recent trend of healthcare system consolidation in the Northern Illinois market. See the below link for additional information.
