Northeast Georgia, Habersham Medical Centers to Form Partnership

Gainesville, Ga.-based Northeast Georgia Medical Center has signed a letter of intent with the Habersham County Hospital Authority to work toward a partnership with Habersham Medical Center in Demorest, Ga.

Both groups specified in the letter they would work toward a possible lease arrangement, although they haven't officially decided on the partnership model, according to a news release. The two organizations will now move into a phase of due diligence, which officials expect will last until late fall. After that, the medical centers expect to sign a definitive agreement and submit it to the state's attorney general for review.

The attorney general's review will likely take four to six months, and hospital officials don't expect any operational changes to take place until spring 2014, according to the release.
