The agreement helps ensure Valley's ability to serve its community for years to come." Additionally, he told NJBIZ, "We are gratified that, through the terms of this agreement, Horizon and Valley will continue our longstanding relationship, working together to assist our mutual communities to live longer, better and healthier lives."The settlement and Day Pitney's representation of Valley Health was also covered in a Law360 article, "Horizon Settles With Last Hospital In Tiered Plan Suit."
