Emory/Saint Joseph's partnership

In March, Emory Healthcare and Saint Joseph’s Hospital announced a new partnership between the two systems. This development will help meet the needs of a growing population during an era of health care reform, a consolidating health care environment, and rapid economic change. It creates the largest, most clinically comprehensive health system in Georgia.

“Combining the excellence of our physicians, skill and experience of our clinical staffs, and promise of our research capabilities only strengthens what we offer patients,” says John Fox, president and CEO of Emory Healthcare.

The partnership—in which Emory Healthcare will hold a majority ownership of Saint Joseph’s with a 51/49 percentage split—is consistent with Emory’s strategic goals as a destination for quality patient care, education, and research. It also augments planned reinvestment in strong campuses at Emory University Hospital (EUH) and EUH Midtown.

The partnership allows Saint Joseph’s to retain involvement in governance of the new joint operating company and have super majority voting rights on certain issues critical to its mission. The partnership is subject to review by the Catholic Archbishop of Atlanta, and it is anticipated that Saint Joseph’s will continue as a Catholic facility sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy.
