Navicent Health announced that a McDonald’s restaurant inside its major Macon, Ga., hospital is closing after a complaint by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, according to an article on the Under the Georgia Sun website.

A similar protest preceded the closing of a McDonald’s restaurant on the Grady Memorial Hospital campus three years ago. 

The Physicians Committee, which includes 12,000 doctors, said there are 13 states that have hospitals with contracts with McDonald’s, Wendy’s or Chick-fil-A.

Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, Piedmont Fayette Hospital in Fayetteville, and University Hospital in Augusta have Chick-fil-A stores, the group said, while Augusta University Medical Center/Children’s Hospital of Georgia in Augusta and Northside Hospital in Atlanta have McDonald’s.
