Following is an excerpt:

Watertown Regional Medical Center announced that it has agreed to form a joint venture with LifePoint Hospitals Inc., in what would be the first time a for-profit hospital chain bought a stake in a nonprofit community hospital in Wisconsin.

LifePoint, based in Brentwood, Tenn., operates more than 60 hospitals in 21 states and had revenue of $3.7 billion last year.

The final agreement will be reviewed by the attorney general under state law.

"It may be the first time there's a review under this statute," said Alyce Katayama, a partner at Quarles & Brady.
