Methodist Le Bonheur adds doc practice
For three-hospital Methodist Le Bonheur, Eastmoreland represents another physician practice acquisition. The system acquired Mid-Town Internal Medicine in August. Gary Shorb, president and CEO of Methodist Le Bonheur, said hospitals in the release that hospitals must align themselves more closely with doctors.
"We know that aligning with high-quality physician practices will improve patient care through quality initiatives and evidence-based medicine developed by physician leaders," Shorb said in a statement.
Eastmoreland will maintain its location at Methodist University in Memphis.
