Rome Hospitals To Change Owners?

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.
