Executives of two Long Island, N.Y., hospital systems announced the consummation of their systems' merger Oct. 30, one week after a federal judge threw out the U.S. Justice Department's antitrust challenge of the deal (Oct. 27, p. 4). As of last week, the department hadn't decided whether to appeal the decision, which cleared the merger of Long Island Jewish Medical Center and North Shore Health System. Pictured (from left) are David Dantzker, M.D., co-president; Saul Katz, board co-chairman; Roy Zuckerberg, board co-chairman; and John Gallagher, co-president; all of the newly created North Shore-Long Island Jewish Medical Center Health System.
