Hinsdale Hospital will stay with AdventHealth

Hinsdale Hospital’s commitment to quality and patient care will remain unaltered following a change in corporate ownership, said Adam Maycock, president and chief executive officer of Hinsdale and La Grange Medical Centers.

News broke last week that the two national chains that joined to form Amita Health would split up.

Hinsdale Hospital will remain part of AdventHealth, based in Altamonte Springs, Fla.. The company has 45 hospital campuses in 10 states and serves more than 4.5 million patients each year.

Adventist Midwest Health and Ascension’s Alexian Brothers Health System merged in 2015 to create Amita. In 2018, 10 Presence Health hospitals joined Ascension, becoming part of Amita as well.

“Leaders of both sponsoring organizations have determined that going forward separately is in their collective best interest in order to more nimbly meet the changing needs and expectations of consumers in the rapidly evolving healthcare environment,” states a short announcement on Amita’s website.

“Both organizations are committed to a smooth and expeditious transition. Following the transition, AdventHealth and Ascension will operate their individual hospitals and care sites in the Chicagoland area. There will be no disruption to patient care.”

Thor Thordarson, currently executive vice president and chief operating officer at Amita, will lead the AdventHealth hospitals in Illinois, Maycock confirmed. Hospital leadership will remain through the transition, he said. “I look forward to sharing more information in the coming weeks as the transition details become more clear,” he added.
