HCA to add 10th hospital in Georgia

Meadows Regional Medical Center in Vidalia, Ga., has signed a letter of intent to join Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare.

Meadows Regional President and CEO Alan Kent said the hospital explored joining several systems before entering exclusive negotiations with HCA. He told WTOC the hospital is looking to join HCA to build on the programs and services currently offered.

If the transaction is finalized, HCA has pledged to keep Meadows Regional's 900 employees. The hospital's staff could even grow as new programs are added, Mr. Kent told WTOC.

HCA owns and operates more than 180 hospitals across the nation. Meadows Regional would be the company's 10th hospital in Georgia. In 2018, HCA acquired Savannah, Ga.-based Memorial Health, which includes a 612-bed academic medical center and primary and specialty care networks.
