Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, has reported no new developments in a federal investigation disclosed to bondholders in late 2008 regarding relationships between the 787-bed hospital and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation. The medical practice is made up of more than 500 physicians who are faculty members of the hospitals academic affiliate, Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University. Nothing has been determined at this point, said Northwestern Memorial spokeswoman Kris Lathan. The hospitals unaudited financial statements filed for bondholders in April contains a one-paragraph summary of the investigation, noting only that the hospital received subpoenas from HHS inspector generals office in August 2008 and is cooperating fully.
