Atlanta hospitals may merge

  • Follow Health

ATLANTA — Executives with Atlanta Medical Center say they’re exploring a plan to consolidate the hospital with South Fulton Medical Center.

Atlanta Medical Center officials said in a statement that executives from both hospitals are in discussions with the Georgia Department of Community Health to determine the most viable option and to secure needed approvals.

Atlanta Medical Center is a 460-bed academic medical center in downtown Atlanta. South Fulton Medical Center is a 338-bed community hospital in East Point. Both facilities are owned by affiliates of Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare Corp.

If approved, South Fulton Medical Center would become Atlanta Medical Center - South Campus.

I guess if they merge they can eliminate one CEO and one CFO and one COO and the secretarial staff that go with them.
