The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a case, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) vs. Phoebe Putney Health Systems Inc. et al. (11-1160), that could affect whether nonprofit hospitals and other nonprofit health care providers are subject to federal antitrust laws.

The FTC is suing over a move by Georgia to let Phoebe Putney Health System, an independent nonprofit company that has a 40-year lease on the public hospital in Albany-Dougherty County, Ga., acquire the only other hospital in the community, Palmyra Medical Center.
