Two Healthcare Greats

Northside Hospital and Gwinnett Health System (the parent of Gwinnett Medical Center) announced today that they have cleared the final regulatory hurdle toward combining operations. The merger agreement was approved by the State of Georgia Office of the Attorney General in November 2017.  Late last week, the Federal Trade Commission completed its review of the combination and gave its approval to move forward. The two systems now will focus on finalizing patient, operational, and business functions. The combined system is expected to be operational by summer 2019. Northside Hospital and Gwinnett Health System are both driven by quality patient care and satisfaction, strong medical professionals, health care innovation and unparalleled patient access.  Anchored by five hospitals in Sandy Springs, Lawrenceville, Cumming, Canton and Duluth, the new nonprofit health system will also operate additional sites of care including cancer treatment, imaging, surgical, urgent care and other outpatient centers throughout the state. Altogether, the Northside-Gwinnett combined system will have 1,604 inpatient beds, over 250 outpatient locations, 21,000 employees and more than 3,500 physicians on staff. NorthsideGwinnett.com
