Doctors Leave Harbin For Advent Health Redmond
With the word about Harbin Clinic being purchased by Atrium Health, several prominent doctors in Northwest Georgia have left Harbin and switched over to Advent Health Redmond instead of going to work for Atrium Health Floyd.
It has been a whirlwind of activity over the past couple of years with a lot of changes to health care in Northwest Georgia. Redmond became part of Advent Health – a group with ties to the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Floyd was purchased by Atrium Health. The new Atrium Health Floyd started construction of a new free-standing emergency room near Walmart in Trion in Chattooga County.
Then the buzz around the area was that a deal was in the works for Harbin Clinic – a 150 year-old private doctor’s group – to be sold to Atrium Health.
AdventHealth Redmond said Thursday that a group of 8 cardiologists from Harbin had signed contracts committing to AdventHealth. Dr. Michael Ware, Dr. Charles Jackson, Dr. Kipp Slicker, Dr. Robert Styperek, Dr. Andrew McCue, Dr. Spencer Maddox, Dr. Justin Tanner and Dr. Hunter Myers have all signed on at Redmond.
