Georgia Public Broadcasting reported over the weekend that speculation is swirling in Rome about the possible sale of Redmond Regional Medical Center, owned by HCA, to AdventHealth, a Florida-based health system.
Redmond CEO John Quinlivan declined to comment last week about a potential deal.
The potential for a sale could be part of a larger strategy by HCA Healthcare, a Tennessee-based hospital chain. Talk among industry officials has centered on HCA selling other Georgia hospitals as well.
Atrium Health, a system based in Charlotte, N.C., has a pending deal to acquire another Rome hospital, Floyd Medical Center. T
Floyd Medical Center, Polk Medical Center in Cedartown and HCA’s hospital in Cherokee County, Ala., are all on the cusp of an acquisition by Atrium Health.
