The last few months of the Trump administration have brought two challenges to hospital mergers by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). In November, the FTC filed a complaint seeking to block an acquisition in the Memphis metropolitan area. In December, the FTC filed another complaint challenging a hospital merger in Bergen County, NJ, the most populated county in the state and just across the river from New York City. The FTC followed both administrative filings with filings in respective federal district court jurisdictions to enjoin the transactions pending the completion of administrative proceedings.
