Claire Wallace -  

Rush University System for Health has entered a partnership with Franciscan Health hospitals to provide easier access to healthcare in Northwest Indiana. 

Potential affiliations for the partnership include neurosurgery, oncology, neurology and related surgical specialties. 

Under the agreement, Franciscan locations in Crown Point, Dyer, Hammond, Michigan City and Munster, Ind., can be used as clinical trial sites for Rush. 

Rush will be Franciscan's exclusive university medical partner. 

"This partnership with Rush affirms Franciscan Health's commitment to providing patients with cutting-edge treatments and university-level care close to home," Kevin Leahy, Franciscan Alliance president and CEO, said in a Sept. 7 press release. "Rush's expertise and access to clinical treatments combined with Franciscan's new state-of-the-art facilities and compassionate care create a team that can tackle a patient's most complex health challenges."
