Novant Health says 41 doctors leaving to join Tennessee medical group
CHARLOTTE — Novant Health says the decision of dozens of doctors to leave for an out-of-state medical group was unexpected.
Novant on Monday outlined a plan for transitioning 41 Charlotte doctors to Tennessee-based Holston Medical Group, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Charlotte’s second-largest hospital system confirmed the departures Jan. 22.
Novant plans to transfer five Lakeside Family Physicians locations and four Huntersville obstetrics and gynecology clinics to the doctors after they leave May 31.
Novant says the transfer will minimize disruption.
Novant’s chief consumer officer, Jesse Cureton, says this is the first time a group of that size has left the hospital system.
Holston Medical Group has said it’s partnering with Charlotte area doctors who want to return to private practice.
