Brentwood, Tenn.-based Duke LifePoint Healthcare and Wilson (N.C.) Medical Center have signed a definitive agreement to form a joint venture.

Under the agreement, Duke LifePoint would own 80 percent of the joint venture, and Wilson Medical Center and the community would own 20 percent. Additionally, the joint venture would commit to $120 million in capital investments at the medical center during the next decade, according to a news release.
