St. Joseph's Hospital Joins With Emory Healthcare

ATLANTA—Saint Joseph’s Hospital has formed a new venture with Emory Healthcare. As of Jan. 1, it is now part of a joint operating company, which combines Saint Joseph’s with the Emory Johns Creek Hospital, under the Emory Healthcare umbrella.

Emory Healthcare is the majority stakeholder. However, Saint Joseph’s will remain sponsored by its founders, the Sisters of Mercy, “to insure continuation of the Catholic mission and identity,” said a hospital official.

Hospital leaders said the partnership puts the two medical facilities in good standing for the future. Emory and Saint Joseph’s have been working out the details of the joint operating agreement since March 2011.
