Georgia-based health systems in partnership talks

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, April 9, 2010

St. Joseph's Health System and Piedmont Healthcare have announced their intent to create a partnership that could lower their costs and expand their delivery of healthcare. The two Georgia-based hospital systems said they have signed a letter of agreement to enter into exclusive negotiations to create a "joint operating company." It remains unknown exactly what services such a joint operating company would provide, but it could include medical services or shared computer systems, officials told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
