    The linked article was singularly uninformative. It was little more than an infomercial.

    The public “clamor” for affiliation of two theo-medical mega-systems must have been a highly covert one, since it’s evidently not previously garnered media notice in the Pacific Northwest or elsewhere. Nonetheless, the gushing promises to influence healthcare cited by the effusive and eboulliant CEOs and other corporate cheerleaders (evidently eclipsing the enthusiasm of the masses who stand to benefit from this altruistic conglomerate) will surely happen: no more abortions, denial of “death with dignity” legislation, interfering with medical practitioners’ ability to use medical marijuana…these are surely to be only a few of the benefits waiting for the eager patient.
