Georgia-based WellStar Health System plans bold, high-priced expansion

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 27, 2009

Georgia-based WellStar Health System plans to spend $800 million over the next decade in expansion and improvements, including a new $14 million outpatient campus and a $100 million hospital. The health system's plans buck a trend among hospitals to scale back on spending and building projects, and WellStar officials acknowledged some challenges ahead. The new hospital requires state approval, the outpatient campus is the subject of a lawsuit over the property's rezoning, and the economy could force the delay or scaling back of some elements.
