Illinois regulators approve Belleville hospital affiliation with St. Louis provider


BELLEVILLE, Illinois — A Belleville hospital has won state approval to align with a prominent St. Louis health care network.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1hEvLw3 ) reports that the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board on Tuesday approved the affiliation of Memorial Hospital with BJC HealthCare, which operates Barnes Jewish Hospital.

The newly-formed Memorial Regional Health Services Inc. will operate the Belleville facility as well as Memorial Hospital East, which is under construction in Shiloh. BJC also owns 111 acres in Shiloh but hasn't disclosed its plans for that parcel.

The partnership comes after the Illinois review board's approval of a new private hospital in O'Fallon to replace St. Elizabeth Hospital's aging downtown Belleville site.
