ROSWELL, Ga. North Fulton Hospital has announced its recent affiliation with WellStar Health System to develop its cardiology service line.
"It has been a goal of mine, our governing board and members of our physician and clinical teams to provide a higher level of cardiac services to our community," said Debbie Keel, chief executive officer for North Fulton Hospital. "By collaborating with WellStar, we are able to provide our community and first responders with a cardiology program capable of treating our population without having to leave North Fulton."
As part of the affiliation, WellStar Health System will assist in the management of an employed physician practice, education and training for clinical staff within the hospital and provide leadership on service line goals such as accreditation for chest pain within the emergency room, interventional cardiac catheterizations and outpatient diagnostics.
