Barbara T. Sicalides, a partner with Pepper Hamilton and head of the Antitrust Section of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group, was quoted in the April 13, 2017 Law360 article, "Posner Skeptical of $300M Hospital Monopoly Suit."
Saint Francis counsel Barbara Sicalides of Pepper Hamilton LLP disputed Greenberg’s statement, saying that Methodist was acquired by a health care company that set aside nearly $200 million as an investment in the Peoria hospital.
Plus, Methodist meets annually with Blue Cross Blue Shield, one of the sought-after insurers in the Peoria area, Sicalides added.
“These contracts are available to Methodist,” she said. “This market is open.”
