Piedmont Healthcare in Atlanta Creates New Region to Coordinate Care

Atlanta-based Piedmont Healthcare announced the creation of South Region, a collaboration between the three Piedmont-affiliated hospitals on the south side of Atlanta.

These hospitals — Piedmont Fayette Hospital, Piedmont Newnan Hospital and Piedmont Henry Hospital — will work together to enhance patient safety, integrate clinical services where possible and engage employees across the system.

"The purpose behind the development of South Region is to redesign the current care model and strategic cost transformation by integrating and coordinating efforts among our hospitals on the south side of Atlanta," said Piedmont Healthcare president and CEO Tim Stack in the release.

Mike Robertson, current president and CEO of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital in Jasper, Ga., will serve as CEO of the new South Region, effective July 1. Jim Sams, MD, current medical director of primary care for Piedmont Physicians Group, will serve as CMO.
