WellStar Health System said Wednesday that is planning its third “health park’’ in Cobb County. The facility will be located in the Smyrna/Vinings area, an affluent area close to the city of Atlanta. It is expected to open in late 2015 or early 2016. The health park concept seeks to provide an array of outpatient services at one location, aimed at customer convenience.
WellStar Health System and Walgreens announced an agreement Tuesday to collaborate on treating patients who seek care in eight health clinics run by the pharmacy chain in the northwest suburbs of Atlanta. WellStar said it will help handle patients’ health conditions that require a higher level of care than the Walgreens clinics provide.
