Northside Hospital, Gwinnett Health System submit merger proposal to Georgia AG

Atlanta-based Northside Hospital and Lawrenceville, Ga.-based Gwinnett Health System submitted their merger proposal to the State of Georgia Office of the Attorney General for review Aug. 17.

If approved, the combined five-hospital system could be operational in early 2018. It is unclear when the state attorney general's office will issue a verdict on the proposed merger.

The merged entity would comprise 1,479 beds across its five hospitals and various outpatient facilities and cancer care centers, nearly 21,000 employees and 3,500 physicians.
