UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center were assigned to Humana Hospital Illinois, Inc. After the conclusion of the sale, the parties agreed to enter into negotiations to amend the Master Affiliation Agreement. The Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Dentistry felt it was necessary and desirable to amend their Subordinate Affiliation Agreements. The Amended and Restated Master and Subordinate Affiliation Agreements continue to maintain Humana Hospital-Michael Reese as a primary teaching hospital. A copy of the Amended and Restated Master Affiliation Agreement and each Subordinate Affiliation Agreement for the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Dentistry is filed with the secretary of the board for record. In negotiating the agreements, the University received significant benefits. The Amended and Restated Master Agreement provides a financial guarantee of faculty and residents' salaries. In addition, restrictions on the assignment of the agreements have been placed upon Humana. The Amended and Restated Subordinate Agreements enhance the research capabilities of the colleges. Likewise, development of new academic programs is encouraged. The Amended and Restated Master Affiliation Agreement and Subordinate Agreements have been reviewed and approved by the university counsel who has consulted with specialists from the law firm of Gardner, Carton & Douglas. The chancellor at Chicago has recommended that the Board of Trustees approve the Amended and Restated Master Affiliation Agreement and the Amended and Restated Subordinate Affiliation Agreements or such substantially similar documents between Humana Hospital Illinois, Inc., and the University as described herewith. The vice president for academic affairs and the vice president for business and finance have also recommended approval. I concur.
On motion of Mrs. Gravenhorst, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Downey, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Reese, Mrs. Shepherd; no, none; absent, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Mr. Begovich, Mr. Lawless; no, none.)
Disclosure of Executive Session Actions under Open Meetings Act
(19) Under an amendment to the Open Meetings Act, effective July 1, 1989, public bodies subject to the Act which conduct business under exemptions specified in the Act must, at least every six months, determine whether the need for confidentiality still exists with respect to each item considered under such exemption. Attached are copies of the minutes of the executive sessions of October 1991 through April 1992, and previously unreleased items from November 1990 through September 1991. The university counsel and the secretary of the board, after consultation with appropriate administrative officers, have recommended that certain items considered in the periods covered should retain their confidential status, e.g., items of land acquisition in November 1990, January, February, June, July, September, and October of 1991; January and March of 1992; personnel matters in April 1992; and pending litigation in June and September of 1991, February and March of 1992; and that all other items considered in those sessions be released to the public. (Attached materials are filed with the secretary of the board for record.) They further recommend that the president of the University be authorized to release those items retaining confidential status as soon as the need for such confidentiality no longer exists. I concur.
On motion of Mrs. Gravenhorst, these recommendations were approved.
