The 41 doctors leaving Novant Health for an independent practice won't remain in some of their offices as Novant previously said. In January, the doctors announced they were leaving the health system to join the multi-state practice Holston Medical Group.

Novant said the doctors — which are part of Lakeside Family Physicians and Huntersville OB/GYN practices — would be remaining in some of the same locations. Tuesday night, HMG identified 13 practice locations in Charlotte, Mooresville, Huntersville and Denver. 

Dr. Ehab Sharawy is one of the physicians leading the move. He said the group is committed to remaining in the communities it currently serves. 

HMG said the new office locations will open March 19. The day after the agreed upon separation date is in a month, March 18. Novant Health said in a statement the doctors notified the health system they wouldn't be staying in those offices. Novant said those locations, including urgent care, will stay open as it will continue to provide care without interruption.
