Washington, D.C., partner Rob McCann was noted in The Deal Pipeline in an article titled, “Rockford-Mercy tie-up portends more hospital M&A.”

Rockford, a nonprofit health care system in Rockford, Ill., announced it would merge with Mercy Health, a nonprofit in Janesville, Wisconsin, to create a five-hospital system with about $1 billion in net revenue. The merged system also will include more than 550 physicians and 80 outpatient clinics in Illinois and Wisconsin. Rockford Health System has a 396-bed hospital and a 61-bed rehab center. Mercy has hospitals in Janesville and Lake Geneva, Wis., and a 65-bed facility in Harvard, Ill.

The article notes that Rob provided legal advice to Mercy Health during the merger.
