Erlanger, UT debate remains unresolved


The chairman of Erlanger Health System’s board of trustees said he is confident the hospital can resolve its conflict with the University of Tennessee College of Medicine over how its teaching program operates. Control over the physician training program at Erlanger Health System appears to be at the heart of a simmering dispute between the hospital and the university. The issue first surfaced publicly in November when board members passed a resolution directing Erlanger’s executive management to review and enforce the hospital’s affiliation agreement with the university, citing UT’s noncompliance with parts of the agreement. That resolution stopped short of allowing Erlanger’s executives to terminate the agreement without the board’s approval.
