Provena Health, Mokena, Ill., and Resurrection Health Care of Chicago closed on their merger today.

The new entity lacks a name. A media release refers only to a “new healthcare organization.” While without a name, the merger creates the largest Catholic healthcare group in Illinois, combining Provena's six hospitals and 1,361 beds and Resurrection's eight hospitals and 2,220 beds. Financial details weren't disclosed.
