[MUSIC PLAYING] We are very excited that we're coming together with Ingalls Memorial and University of Chicago Medicine under a new unified brand. After a year and a half of working together on integration, we are at the point where we are rolling out to the Southland our new brand, indicating that we are a fully-integrated health system.
I'm very excited about the collaboration with the University of Chicago. To me, it's just an added asset to what we can offer here at Ingalls.
I would say the merger was a great idea. Coming down to the south of the suburbs is, I think, the best thing that the University could have done.
I think the get-together of the U of C and Ingalls will be good for everybody.
Ingalls has always provided outstanding medical services to the Southland. University of Chicago Health System is a world-class tertiary care center. So the partnership between Ingalls Health System and University of Chicago Health System will merge the already outstanding care that our patients in the Southland are used to receiving at Ingalls facilities with the world-class research, and clinical trials, and clinical excellence that exists at the Hyde Park University of Chicago campus.
Well, I've been in practice for a number of years in the Southland. And so it's near and dear to my heart. And I see the need for advanced diabetes care for patients. I think having care for those patients in their community increases access.
I think a huge advantage for patients in the south suburbs is that University of Chicago will bring about world-class physicians in certain specialties that we didn't have out here in the south suburbs.
Having a hospital close to the was very important. It was important because my daughter works, and she need to be as close to me. Because when we were at the University of Chicago, that seemed to be a little hard for her to come there every day. But when we came out here to Ingalls, it was much closer. And I had her there 30 years ago at Ingalls.
Here on the south side, we have access to a lot of things that people in other areas don't have access to, just because of a collaboration with the University of Chicago. And now they don't have to go all the way downtown to get that care. They can get it right here.
When I came here almost 30 years ago, it was immediately noticeable at Ingalls that all of the people who worked in the Ingalls Hospital environment treated each other like a family. And that has all contributed to a very close connected culture that provides a very warm, caring environment for our patients.
Ingalls went through several different suitors, if you will. And University of Chicago was by far and away a leader, and it made the most sense all the way around. And when we see that we have shared values and commitment to the community, to the patients that we serve, it was really a no-brainer in being able to make the affiliation work.
Ingalls has a 90-plus-year history in the Southland Northwest Indiana area. And people want assurances that were going to be there for them. The biggest benefit, from my perspective, of this merger is it secures the future of this community hospital. There is no health condition that you can possibly imagine that we can't take care of you right here in the Southland area. It's an enormous opportunity not only for Ingalls, but the entire Chicago Southland.
Now that Ingalls and University of Chicago Medicine have joined forces, the Southland is now at the forefront of medicine.
