CHICAGO, March 24 (UPI) -- A suburban Chicago firm has hired former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., as a strategic adviser.

Hastert, who retired from Congress last year, will work for the Goeken Group of Naperville, Ill., a medical records firm and parent company of Global Med-Net and Global Med-Net International, the Chicago Tribune reported Monday.

The firm develops databases of medical information that can be accessed in an emergency.

Its founder, John Goeken, 77, also founded Microwave Communications Inc., which became MCI.

Goeken has been a contributor to both Republicans and Democrats, the Tribune said.
