Northwestern Memorial Healthcare last week announced its plan to sign an affiliation agreement with Lake Forest Hospital to form an integrated system.

“The pairing of our academic medical center with such a respected community hospital will greatly benefit our patients at both campuses,” Northwestern chief executive Dean Harrison said. “The affiliation between Northwestern Memorial and Lake Forest Hospital will enable better access to care, clinical trials, new and expanded services, and the latest technologies for patients in Lake and Cook counties and the surrounding regions.”
