Health Midwest, Kansas City, Mo., and the Kansas attorney general ended their legal battle over the not-for-profit system's planned sale to HCA. The agreement endows a new Kansas foundation with $100 million from the sale and eventually 20% of the overall net proceeds, which are estimated at $700 million. The $1.1 billion sale has a March 31 deadline. In a written statement, the Health Midwest board said it was pleased with the agreement. -- by Patrick Reilly
