The Hospital Authority of Habersham County has announced that Habersham Medical Center (HMC) and Quorum Health Resources (QHR) have mutually agreed to part ways as of March 31, 2013. QHR has served as the hospital’s management services provider for 35 years.

This action allows the Authority the strategic flexibility to consider affiliations with regional providers, and make decisions in the long term best interest of the community. Mickey Bilbrey, division vice president for QHR, expressed appreciation for the opportunity to work with Habersham Medical Center and the Authority and wished the hospital success in its future.
