The State of NC Healthcare

More Changes in NC Healthcare

Posted in NC Healthpress by writemyline on 30 June 2009

The Charlotte Business Journal reported back in April that Carolinas Healthcare System (CHS)¬†will “manage” Haywood Regional Medical Center and WestCare Health System. Mission Health System Hospital in Asheville was also considered by the BODs of both western NC hospitals.

Carolinas Healthcare System has gained a considerable hand in four community-based hospitals in this year alone. In the early spring, CHS announced management contracts with Stanly Regional Medical Center in Albemarle and Scotland Memorial Hospital in Laurinburg. With the addition of Haywood and WestCare, CHS owns, leases, or manages 25 hospitals in the Carolinas. The expansion of CHS continues outward despite its $551 million loss in 2008 earnings.
