VUMC links up with Jackson hospital

Officials at Vanderbilt University Medical Center on Tuesday said they've signed a partnership agreement with their peers at West Tennessee Healthcare, a system of 18 facilities in the Jackson area with the 635-bed Jackson-Madison County General Hospital as its flagship. The arrangement is similar to other deals VUMC has made with Maury Regional Medical Center, among others. And Vanderbilt Health System boss Wright Pinson tells Blake Farmer we should expect more news along these lines.
