Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline has appealed a judge's ruling allowing the $1.1 billion sale of 13-hospital Health Midwest, Kansas City, Mo., to HCA, Nashville. A March 31 deadline looms for the deal. Kline said he is appealing to make sure certain issues are reviewed, not to delay the sale. Health Midwest, meanwhile, has appealed the court's ruling that the health system shouldn't merge its Kansas and Missouri assets. -- by Patrick Reilly
