AMC is one of two Level 1 trauma centers in the Atlanta area — Grady Memorial Hospital is the other one.
Other Level 2 trauma centers like Wellstar Kennestone, Gwinnett Medical and Wellstar North Fulton will handle patients who depended on AMC’s Level 1 trauma center.
Wellstar Health System said that in the past six years of operating the hospital, it has invested more than $350 million to support losses.
Officials add that in just the last 12 months, the hospital has lost more than $107 million.
The health system said it will gradually “wind down” services offered at the hospital until it closes.
