According to a release from Elbert Memorial Hospital, AnMed Health and Elbert Memorial Hospital Attorneys submitted the “Affiliation final DRAFT documents” to the Georgia Attorney General for review on December 12.
With a favorable Attorney General opinion, the AnMed Health and Elbert Memorial Hospital Boards will be able to take formal action to approve and execute the final affiliation agreement, but if the Attorney General decides a “full” review is needed, then it may be a while before the affiliation is finalized.
EMH Board Chairman Jim Lloyd said, “The people we serve in Elbert County and surrounding communities will benefit from this affiliation and future local health services tremendously for many years to come. We feel extremely fortunate with this opportunity to affiliate with the AnMed Health System.”
If a favorable review is received, the affiliation will go into effect immediately once both boards approve the final documents.
