Flurry of Activity in Physician Practice Acquisition in Memphis

It seems a week does not go by without at least one physician practice forming a partnership or being acquired by a Memphis area health system.

The most recent announcement, just today, was Methodist's acquisition of Eastmoreland Internal Medicine.

Have you tried to keep up with who owns who? Check out a list developed by doing searches on the Commercial Appeal and Memphis Business Journal websites for Methodist and Baptist.   Although the list may not include all health system-owned physician practices, it does give you a flavor for how much has changed for these two health systems just in the last year!
