MGH sale to Duke LifePoint approved

After many months of what hospital officials refer to as ‘due diligence,’ the sale of Marquette General Hospital to Duke Lifepoint has been approved.

MGH released the following statement to the media late this afternoon:

Attorney General Bill Schuette has completed his review of the proposed acquisition of Marquette General by Duke LifePoint Healthcare. This review was a critical milestone in the process, and we are pleased to move forward with finalizing this transaction following the completion of other closing conditions.  We thank the Attorney General and his associates for their time and attention in reviewing this acquisition and considering its benefits to our community.  We look forward to officially becoming part of Duke LifePoint and having additional resources to strengthen our hospital, enhance the services we offer and advance healthcare across the Upper Peninsula.
