Do you like the new name?

FORT OGLETHORPE, GA. — Hutcheson Medical Center is changing its name — slightly.

The new name will be Erlanger at Hutcheson, according to officials.

In April, Erlanger agreed to manage Hutcheson after the latter defaulted on a $35 million bond and reported several monthly operating losses of $1 million or more, a trend that continues today.

More changes at Hutcheson, including new services, are expected to be announced during a news conference today.
