Daily Herald report

The Hoffman Estates village board granted a license to the new Alexian Brothers Women and Children's Hospital Monday night that could increase its state reimbursements for dedicating additional resources to personnel and training.

The license allows for a possible increase in reimbursements to the hospital for its expenditure of more resources than a typical hospital to personnel, equipment and training, said Kelley Clancy, vice president for external affairs for Alexian Brothers Health System.

Illinois has a different method for reimbursing services provided to hospitals if the services are provided in a children's hospital licensed by a municipality.
