WellStar Health Report.
WellStar Health System, the largest health system in Georgia, is known nationally for its innovative care models, focused on improving quality and access to healthcare. Staying ahead of the curve in technology has enabled WellStar to be leaders in both the diagnosis and treatment of an extensive array of health conditions.
Specialists and primary care providers work in a multi-disciplinary environment with 20,000 team members throughout 11 hospitals, 225 medical office locations, outpatient centers, health parks, a pediatric center, nursing centers, hospice, homecare.
WellStar’s senior leadership, Board of Trustees, Authority, Regional and Foundation Boards evaluate its community’s emerging needs to equip its facilities with the best new technology. As a not-for-profit, WellStar continually reinvests into the health of its communities through new treatments, services and facilities.
Five of WellStar’s 11 hospitals are leased to WellStar by their respective hospital authority. The hospital authorities retain ownership of the hospitals and ensure that WellStar meets the conditions set forth in the leases. Each Hospital Authority is independent of WellStar, and the board members of each authority are appointed according to bylaws of each authority. Some authority members are appointed by county commissioners and some are appointed by the authority itself.
