Atrium Health said this week it plans to acquire another Georgia-based health-care system, this time Floyd Health System in Rome.

The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals by state authorities and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

Atrium, based in Charlotte, has 39 hospitals in its network. Floyd has more than 3,300 employees at four hospitals and affiliated providers, foremost at the 304-bed Floyd Medical Center in Rome.

Atrium has pledged to spend $650 million in capital investments on Floyd projects over 11 years, as wells as $80 million in support of Floyd Healthcare Foundation.

In February 2018, Atrium announced it would acquire Navicent Health, which serves central and south Georgia, including Macon, Ga., and Bibb County.
