Sale of Hutcheson Medical Center Complete

The sale of Cornerstone Medical Center, formerly Hutcheson Medical Center, is now complete. The sale process began in Dec. 2015 after ApolloMD entered into a management of services agreement and was given less than a week to re-open the hospital. Cornerstone Medical Center (CMC) is the first bricks-and-mortar hospital purchase for ApolloMD.

Our goal is to provide quality, innovative care to our patients and we look forward to partnering with community stakeholders as we begin this journey.”
