Atrium Health

Atrium Health is opening a primary care practice at the YMCA near uptown Monday. The new practice will serve between 16 and 20 patients a day and adds to the physical therapy and rehab services the health system already offers at two other YMCA locations.

The group of about 90 doctors that sued Atrium Health to leave and form an independent practice have dropped the suit. The physicians are part of Mecklenburg Medical Group, and announced in April they were leaving Atrium and suing the health system to get out of their contracts.

At least 151 employees of Atrium Health’s previous anesthesiology provider are at risk of being laid off. This comes after a long, bitter public battle between the health system and the doctors' group.

A new group of anesthesiologists will start at Atrium Health hospitals July 1 as planned after a bitter court fight and public battle with the outgoing group of physicians.

Atrium Health says it plans to spend about $1 billion to expand its health care facilities in the Charlotte region and beyond. But it’s not quite clear exactly what will be built, where the money will come from for these new projects, and what Atrium defines as beyond.

The group of nearly 90 doctors leaving Atrium Health is rebranding itself as the Tryon Medical Partners. Formerly part of the Mecklenburg Medical Group, Tryon Medical Partners split with Atrium after it sued the hospital network in a challenge to Atrium's non-compete agreements so its doctors could practice independently. 

A judge has denied the request of former Atrium Health anesthesiology provider Mednax for a temporary restraining order to force the hospital system to keep its anesthesiologists working at its facilities.

The anesthesiology provider that lost its contract to Atrium Health is trying to stop the new hospital network’s contractor from hiring its physicians. This is just the latest action in a public battle between the health system and the doctors group.

Atrium Health says an ad campaign by its former anesthesiology contractor is causing it to lose patients. The health system added this new allegation to its lawsuit against Mednax, which still employs doctors that work at Atrium through the end of June.  

More than 600 people have died from flu-related illnesses in the Carolinas, according to state health department reports. The flu season officially runs through the end of May.
