Emory University statement regarding WellStar Health System's decision to end discussions to create a new health system
Woodruff Health Sciences Center | June 9, 2015
Emory University regrets that WellStar Health System has decided to discontinue our discussions and planning with them to create a new, unified health system.
Emory continues to believe that the proposed combination of Emory Healthcare and WellStar Health System would serve our communities well as a way to extend the benefits of our renowned academic medical center to a larger population of patients in Metro Atlanta, as well as the state of Georgia and beyond.
Emory Healthcare and its extraordinary physicians, nurses, and staff are committed to providing unparalleled care for patients at one of the world’s leading academic medical centers and will continue to thrive in serving our community and the world.
