Atlanta Medical Center appeal to be heard Jan. 8
The Georgia Supreme Court will hear the case of Tenet Health System GB Inc. vs. Thomas at 10 a.m. on Jan. 8.
Tenet Health System GB Inc., doing business as The Atlanta Medical Center, is appealing a Georgia Court of Appeals decision that allows a medical malpractice lawsuit against it to go forward. The hospital argued that an amendment to the lawsuit, which added a new cause of action against a nurse who was not named in the original lawsuit against two doctors, was barred by a two-year statute of limitations.
The original case revolved around a complaint against physicians for professional negligence, as well as the hospital for the negligence of its physicians.
Georgia Supreme Court case number S17G1021
