ST. LOUIS (AP) - SSM Health Care, one of the largest Catholic health care providers in the U.S., plans to purchase the Dean Health Systems group in Wisconsin.

The merger announced Tuesday is pending approval of Dean physician shareholders and regulators. SSM says the transaction could be complete by this summer. Terms were not disclosed.

St. Louis-based SSM is a non-profit organization with 18 hospitals and other health care operations in Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin and Oklahoma.

Dean Health Systems is a Madison, Wis.-based physician-owned organization with more than 60 clinics, plus eye care and pharmacy operations. It already partners with SSM for the Dean Health Plan insurance provider in Wisconsin.

   Late Tuesday night, some American Airlines passengers were still waiting to get to their destinations after a computer glitch grounded the carrier's flights most of the day.  

   American officials say a problem with their flight reservations system forced them to cancel or delay more than 700 flights across the country, including more than 20 Lambert Airport flights.  

   The glitch was resolved around 4:30 Tuesday afternoon, too late for some passengers, who'll have to wait to travel until Wednesday.
