Attorney General Will Monitor UPMC-Altoona Regional Merger
The merger between the Altoona Regional Health System and UPMC appears to have cleared its last major hurdle.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane says she won't object to the affiliation agreement between both organizations.
But Kane made it clear Tuesday that she'll watch closely to ensure that a dispute between the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Highmark does not interfere with patients' access to Altoona Regional now that UPMC has taken over.
She says 60-percent of Blair County residents who have insurance are Highmark subscribers and that it would be unfair for anyone to be shut out of the Altoona system because of the Highmark-UPMC dispute. She says UPMC and Highmark must work out a long-term agreement that guarantees everyone have access to UPMC Altoona.
UPMC through a news release pledged to continue cooperating fully with state regulators and stay focused on being a world-class healthcare provider.
