SYLVANIA - Ownership of the Jenkins County Hospital is anticipated to officially transfer hands at the beginning of October, with Screven County Hospital following suit mid-December, after purchases for both by the Community Hospital Management Company, LP of Savannah are completed later this year. As a group of physicians operating an orthopedic practice for more than nine years, the Community Hospital Management CEO Michael Kleinpeter said they have been able to accommodate outpatient business such as imaging, therapy, and ambulatory surgery, yet never have had the ability to do anything inpatient. "Venturing into the hospital business has helped us complete our orthopedic line of service," he said.
