However, you will not see any rapid signage changes at these or other Gwinnett Health System locations – this process will be conducted gradually and with appropriate research, input, and planning. For care provided at Gwinnett locations beginning August 28, patient bills and statements will be addressed from Northside Hospital, and payments will be made to the same. For care received at Gwinnett locations prior to August 28, patient bills will come from and be payable to Gwinnett Medical Center.
Over time, the new system – with its expected growth and expansion — should create additional job opportunities. In past years, as Northside has joined with other health care providers, strong system growth has been one of the results.
And we also have common goals that represent critical building blocks for a combined health care system: to ensure the continued enhancement of quality care; to build a strong and aligned primary care network; to maintain strong financial performance; to innovate and improve processes; to optimize technology; and to provide an adaptive culture.
