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. 

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.

With billboards, petitions, a website and ads, anesthesiologists have made an employment debate with Atrium Health public. Southeast Anesthesiology Consultants is crying foul over Atrium’s decision to select a new provider, owned by a former Atrium consultant. In response, Atrium is accusing the company of defaming the hospital.

The fallout of Atrium's decision to end its nearly 40-year relationship with Southeast Anesthesiology Consultants and its parent company Mednax has spurred charges that the new company intends to reduce the number of doctors it utilizes — a claim that the new company taking over and Atrium denies.
