SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Doctors at Memorial Health in Savannah say they are on-board with the hospital's agreement to partner with Novant Health.

The hospital's board of directors held a special meeting Monday afternoon to get an update on the deal.

Doctors met with the Chatham County Hospital Authority on Friday, and they say the partnership will be a good fit since Novant has a similar "culture" to Memorial.

The deal is designed to reduce expenses, improve patient care and protect safety net services under a bigger health care umbrella.
