Georgia Public Broadcasting reported over the weekend that speculation is swirling in Rome about the possible sale of Redmond Regional Medical Center, owned by HCA, to AdventHealth, a Florida-based health system.
Redmond CEO John Quinlivan declined to comment last week about a potential deal.
The potential for a sale could be part of a much larger strategy by HCA Healthcare – a Tennessee-based hospital chain. Talk among industry officials has centered on HCA selling other Georgia hospitals as well.
Atrium Health, based in Charlotte, North Carolina apparently has a pending deal to acquire another Rome hospital – Floyd Medical Center. Floyd Medical Center, Polk Medical Center in Cedartown and HCA’s hospital here in Cherokee County (Alabama) are all reportedly on the cusp of an acquisition by Atrium Health.
