Grand COMPLAINT The United States of America and the State of Michigan bring this civil antitrust action to enjoin agreements by Defendants Hillsdale Community Health Center (‘‘Hillsdale’’), W.A. Foote Memorial Hospital, d/b/a Allegiance Health (‘‘Allegiance’’), Community Health Center of Branch County (‘‘Branch’’), and ProMedica Health System, Inc.

Defendants are healthcare providers in Michigan that operate the only general acute-care hospital or hospitals in their respective counties. Defendants directly compete with each other to provide healthcare services to the residents of south-central Michigan. Marketing is a key component of this competition and includes advertisements, mailings to patients, health fairs, health screenings, and outreach to physicians and employers. 2. Allegiance, Branch, and ProMedica’s Bixby and Herrick Hospitals (‘‘Bixby and Herrick’’) are Hillsdale’s closest Michigan competitors. Hillsdale orchestrated agreements to limit marketing of competing healthcare services. Allegiance explained in a 2013 oncology marketing plan: ‘‘[A]n agreement exists with the CEO of Hillsdale Community Health Center, Duke Anderson, to not conduct marketing activity in Hillsdale County.’’ Branch’s CEO described the Branch agreement with Hillsdale as a ‘‘gentlemen’s agreement not to market services.’’ A ProMedica communications specialist described the ProMedica agreement with Hillsdale E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1

Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod From South Africa and 
Ukraine

Determinations

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission 
(``Commission'') determines, pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the 
Act''), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by 
reason of imports of carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from South 
Africa and Ukraine, provided for in subheadings 7213.91.30, 7213.91.45, 
7213.91.60, 7213.99.00, 7227.20.00, and 7227.90.60 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the 
Department of Commerce

[[Page 9750]]

(``Commerce'') to be sold in the United States at less than fair value 
(``LTFV'').\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).

antidumping duty order on South Africa.
