Wellstar In Talks To Acquire Five Metro Atlanta Hospitals

Wellstar Health System, Inc. said that it is beginning negotiations with Tenet Healthcare Corp. (NYSE:THC) to buy its metro hospitals, including Atlanta Medical Center in downtown and Roswell’s North Fulton Hospital. The latter is considered the biggest prize among the group because of its location in the affluent northern Atlanta suburbs.
