Atlanta Medical Center (AMC) and South Fulton Medical Center have consolidated into one hospital with two campuses, effective Jan. 1, 2013. South Fulton Medical Center has been renamed Atlanta Medical Center – South Campus.

Now licensed as a 762-bed acute care hospital, Atlanta Medical Center is the second largest licensed-bed hospital in Georgia. With its main campus located in downtown Atlanta, the hospital’s South Campus in East Point, GA provides care to the surrounding communities of East Point, College Park, Hapeville and Camp Creek.

“Both of these hospitals have a long history of serving our communities,” said William T. Moore, president and CEO of Atlanta Medical Center. “We are pleased to provide even greater service to our patients by combining our strengths, providing quality health care to a larger region and offering a choice of location.”

The consolidation has been in the works since last spring, as the two hospitals explored ways to ensure long-term stability. On Dec. 31, 2012, the Georgia Department of Community Health issued a licensing permit recognizing Atlanta Medical Center as a 762-bed acute care hospital.

An academic medical center, AMC has been serving the community since 1901. With the consolidation, the hospital now has almost 3,000 employees and contractors; 580 physicians on its medical staff; and handles more than 21,000 inpatient admissions and 162,000 outpatient visits each year. Atlanta Medical Center offers comprehensive health care, including 24-hour emergency services, Level 1 trauma care, stroke treatment, women’s services, medical imaging, orthopedics, sleep center, pulmonary, cardiac care and bariatric surgery for weight loss.

Atlanta Medical Center is owned by Tenet Healthcare Corporation.
