Greg Charleston: Huge hospital merger still unfinished after state’s OK – Georgia Health News
Greg Charleston was featured in Georgia Health News’ article titled “Huge hospital merger still unfinished after state’s OK.”
The FTC process “is a bit of a black box,’’ said Greg Charleston, senior managing director and Atlanta leader of Conway MacKenzie’s regional office, who has worked on merger approvals. “I think there’s a lack of clarity on what the FTC is looking for.’’
“An FTC review can be done in a couple of months,’’ Charleston said Monday. “It may take longer if they have concerns.’’
There appears to be more FTC scrutiny of health care mergers over the past five years, added Charleston, who is not involved in the Northside deal.
“There are a lot of voices in a health care merger,’’ including physicians and insurers, he said.
