U. of Illinois may unify health institutions
URBANA -- Next week University of Illinois trustees will consider a proposal to unify the school's hospital, clinics and health-related academic efforts under one umbrella.
The university said Monday that a committee of trustees reviewed the plan Monday. Trustees are expected to vote on the plan at the regular quarterly meeting March 6 in Urbana.
Under the plan the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago and the other health-care related efforts would be run by a new vice chancellor for health affairs at the Chicago campus.
The plan would take effect in early 2015.
University President Robert Easter says the new organizational structure would help advance research and patient care.
