Clients PinnacleHealth System and Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

Jones Day represented PinnacleHealth System and Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center as antitrust counsel in the hospitals' proposed merger. The hospitals won a district court decision denying a request from the Federal Trade Commission and Pennsylvania attorney general for an injunction blocking the merger, but decided not to pursue the merger following a Third Circuit decision ordering the district court to grant the injunction.
