Novant Health furthers Georgia expansion

Continuing its expansion into Georgia, Novant Health has entered an agreement with University Health Care System in Augusta to support its efforts to provide high-quality care while also lowering costs.

The agreement with University is the latest for Novant Health’s Shared Services division, which was launched in 2011.

Novant, based in Winston-Salem, is a nonprofit system that operates 13 hospitals and about 350 medical clinics in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.

In September, Novant Shared Services also announced an agreement with Memorial Health of Savannah, and in February, the division announced a collaboration with Cape Fear Valley Health in Fayetteville.

Each hospital system will remain independent, retaining local ownership and management, but they will share best practices, information technology and purchasing power. Karen Garloch
