Piedmont Heathcare announced on Monday that it is buying Cartersville Medical Center, as well as one in Snellville and two in Macon from HCA Healthcare.
The sales price for the four hospitals totals $950 million.
The acquisition will give Piedmont 15 acute care hospitals statewide.
The purchase gives Piedmont the 119 bed facility in Cartersville (Level III trauma center), 310-bed Eastside Medical Center in Snellville, 310-bed Coliseum Medical Centers and 103-bed Coliseum Northside in Macon.
“As a not-for-profit organization, we return our profits to the communities we serve by reinvesting in the care provided in those communities,” said Kevin Brown, president and CEO of Piedmont Healthcare. He said Piedmont would work to integrate the hospitals into a network of physician’s offices, urgent care centers and surgery centers.
Piedmont will also become a partner in a joint venture for 12 urgent and family care clinics.
