This investigation and class action lawsuit is brought as a class action on behalf of all end-payors who purchased inpatient and outpatient healthcare services directly from Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Corporation, its wholly-owned hospitals, from at least as early as January 1, 2000 to the present including Evanston Hospital, Glenbrook Hospital, and Highland Park Hospital. During and throughout the Class Period, Evanston Northwestern Healthcare engaged in illegal monopolization of the market for inpatient and outpatient healthcare services in the geographic triangle formed by Evanston Northwestern Healthcare's three wholly-owned hospitals, Evanston Hospital, Glenbrook Hospital, and Highland Park Hospital. As determined by the Federal Trade Commission, the merger of these hospitals substantially lessened competition in the relevant market and Plaintiff and the Class paid artificially inflated prices for healthcare services.
