Metro Atlanta hospitals create partnerships

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 18, 2010

Spurred by a tough economy, metro Atlanta hospitals are increasingly creating partnerships with one another, aiming to save money, expand territory, and in some cases pump new blood into struggling institutions, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. For example, Piedmont and St. Joseph's announced in April their intent to create a partnership that could produce several medical centers, expanding their delivery of healthcare while lowering their costs. In addition, Gwinnett Medical Center broke ground this week on its open-heart cardiac center, which will use surgeons from St. Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta.
