Medical practice that sued Atrium for independence opens $2.8M surgery center

February 14, 2019 / Joanne Finnegan

It’s been almost a year since a group of North Carolina doctors sued Atrium Health to go out on their own. Tryon Medical Partners, the independent practice set up by those doctors, has now opened eight medical clinics in the Charlotte area and today is scheduled to open a $2.8 million gastrointestinal surgery center at its Ballantyne location. The 88 physicians formally left Atrium last Aug. 31 and launched Tryon Medical Partners on Sept. 5. Since then, the practice has been busy establishing itself in the community. “I am pleased that we have been able to fully stand up our medical practice serving almost 100,000 patients and open eight large clinics in less than six months,” said Dale Owen, M.D., the CEO of Tryon and a cardiologist with the practice.
