Members of the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board have been subpoenaed for information from the certificate-of-need board's historic records, a source close to the matter told Modern Healthcare. The subpoenas seek information on board actions from several years ago, according to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. At deadline, officials with the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago could not be reached for comment. Officials with the Illinois Department of Public Health and the CON board declined to comment. The board is reviewing proposals for four new hospitals, a volume unmatched in decades. There was no indication that the subpoenas have any relation to the proposals. -- by Mark Taylor
