Joint statement issued
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office have completed their antitrust reviews of Lehigh Valley Health Network’s (LVHN) proposal to acquire the assets of Coordinated Health, allowing the transaction to move forward.
We anticipate that the transaction documents will be completed in the coming weeks. Until such time, we will continue to operate as separate entities.
