DeKalb Medical has completed the definitive agreement for the hospital system’s strategic partnership with Emory Healthcare. This week, DeKalb Medical is filing the agreement with the Attorney General’s office for review and approval. The Federal Trade Commission has already approved the partnership, so this is the last remaining regulatory approval.
DeKalb Medical expects to become part of Emory Healthcare approximately 100 days after filing, assuming a favorable outcome from the Attorney General review.
CEO Bob Wilson wishes to thank all physicians for choosing DeKalb Medical for their patients. DeKalb Medical looks forward to a stronger organization that can serve patients even better with this partnership. DeKalb Medical will continue to seek input and involvement from physicians as the transition evolves.
