On December 31, 2010 CarolinaEast Health System formally announced it acquisition of East Carolina Internal Medicine.
I found out about this January 3, 2011 when I tried to call and was on hold significantly longer than usual. I was advised then of the “take over” and that each patient had to be re-entered into the system as a new patient.
The press release says that this will be a “seamless transition”. I have an appointment in a few days – we’ll see how seemless it is. We have been going to ECIM since the early 1990’s.
