Methodist Hospitals Chief Talks About Becoming Part Of Franciscan Alliance

Methodist Hospitals and Franciscan Alliance are considering becoming northwest Indiana's largest healthcare provider, if the details can be worked out and regulators approve the proposal. A non-binding letter of intent was signed this week by the two.

Ray Grady, the President and CEO of the Gary-based system, was on "Regionally Speaking" on Thursday to talk  about the months-long process of finding a partner -- what will now happen over the next six months -- and what becoming part of the Franciscan Alliance system can bring to the future of northwest Indiana healthcare.

Here's the conversation.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
