Arlington Heights-based Alexian Brothers Health System and Maywood-based Loyola University Health System said Wednesday they are partnering to expand the reach of their pediatric service lines in the Chicago area.

The two Catholic health systems' children's hospitals signed a letter of intent to become affiliates. They said they will recruit and share pediatric sub-specialists and will collaborate on other physician-sharing opportunities.

Alexian and Loyola also plan to work with community-based pediatricians on population health management opportunities and to expand access at each institution as well as in community-based ambulatory-care practices.

"This new affiliation will benefit patients by building on and expanding the clinical program strengths of each health system, making them more available to the communities we serve," said Patricia Cassidy, Alexian senior vice president and chief strategy officer.

The affiliation will enable Alexian and Loyola to offer a comprehensive array of pediatric specialties and will increase access to pediatric sub-specialists, who often can be hard to find, Cassidy said.

"Access to high-quality pediatric clinical programs in a coordinated network of care is a vision both of our organizations share," said Daniel Post, senior vice president of clinical programs, and chief business development officer, at Loyola. "The Loyola and Alexian Brothers Pediatric Affiliation will provide patients and referring physicians improved access to these high-quality programs in their communities."
