Taylor Health Care Group and Central Georgia Health System Form Strategic Alliance

Taylor Health Care Group and Central Georgia Health System Form Strategic Alliance
Goal is to Continue Providing High-Quality Health Care in Uncertain Times
MACON, GA (Tuesday, March 27, 2012) – Taylor Health Care Group, which includes Taylor Regional Hospital, the second oldest health care facility in central Georgia, and its sister hospital, Bleckley Memorial Hospital under Taylor Management Services, will form a strategic alliance with Central Georgia Health System (CGHS). The Taylor network includes a wellness and rehabilitation center, a home health care center, a medical equipment business, a cancer treatment facility, professional office buildings and a number of physician outreach clinics in neighboring counties. Health care consumers in Pulaski, Bleckley and surrounding counties will have access to the knowledge, expertise and resources of CGHS, including The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG).
“The longstanding relationship between Taylor Health Care Group and Central Georgia Health System has featured numerous positive collaborative efforts,” CGHS/MCCG Chief Executive Officer and President Don Faulk said. “We're excited to take this relationship to another level. MCCG will serve as Taylor's tertiary care support hospital as we both continue our mission in supporting the central Georgia community by providing high-quality health care.”
With the challenges health care providers face in the current environment of emerging reform, physician and other profession shortages, and higher capital requirements for information technology, formal affiliations are important to continue providing the highest-quality health care for central and south Georgians.
“We are excited to further our partnership with Central Georgia Health System,” Taylor Health Care Group CEO and President Dan Maddock said. “A strategic alliance will allow our health systems to continue providing the best health care in these challenging times.”
CGHS will make available as possible support services requested by Taylor such as IT/IS strategic planning, physician network development, finance, audit and compliance, consultation on employee benefit design and vendor procurement. Secondly, the alliance will allow for additional and ongoing discussions on options for further integration of Taylor and CGHS operations.
Don Faulk and Central Georgia Health System Vice President of Post Acute Services and Regional Development Elbert McQueen will be available to answer follow-up questions today until 5 p.m.
