Newton Medical Center is one step closer to finalizing an affiliation with Piedmont Healthcare after the Office of the Attorney General ruled in favor of the partnership agreement on Friday, September 4th. Effective Oct. 1, Newton Medical Center will become Piedmont Newton Hospital.
Since announcing the terms of the partnership agreement in May, officials with Piedmont and Newton have worked diligently to determine how best to align the organizations and meet the needs of the community.
Georgia’s Office of the Attorney General conducts a public review process for all transactions related to the acquisition of not-for-profit hospitals in Georgia. Since its first acquisition in 2004, Piedmont has always received strong community support.
