Stack took over as head of Piedmont — one of metro Atlanta’s largest health systems — in December 2001. He grew the organization from two hospitals and eight physician practices to a $1.6 billion operation.
Today, the health system boasts five hospitals, more than 50 primary care and specialty physician practices and a 900-member physician network. Stack was also integral to the creation of the Piedmont Heart Institute, which employs more than 100 cardiovascular experts.
“Tim was a remarkable father, husband and friend, and a courageous leader for our organization,” said Patrick Battey, chair of Piedmont’s board of directors.
