A change that could affect the health care you receive is headed our way, but Mary Lanning Healtchare says that change is for the better.

Saint Francis and Good Samaritan are already part of the Catholic Health Initiatives system, and soon Mary Lanning will be joining a network of its own.

Mary Lanning is one of nine independent hospitals across the state that are banding together to form a new healthcare network.

For the hospitals spanning from Omaha to Scottsbluff, it's all about saving money and competing with other networks like Catholic Health Initiatives.

A spokesperson for Mary Lanning Healthcare said they've been working on the deal for nearly a year and a half and now the paperwork to form the governing board could be completed in the next 90 days.
