The Finest Georgia Healthcare
State-of-the-art facilities coupled with skilled physicians, nurses and support personnel have made Gainesville the undeniable hub of Northeast Georgia healthcare.
At its center is Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS), an organization dedicated to improving the health and quality of life for the people of Northeast Georgia. Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) is the heart of the Health System, serving more than 800,000 citizens across Northeast Georgia with a 557-bed acute inpatient hospital staffed by 500+ physicians.
The Hall County Health Department serves all county residents, and its mission is to prevent disease, injury, and disability; promote health and well being; and prepare for and respond to disasters. During the last five years, the health department has served over 35% of the county population. For adult residents, the health department offers immunizations, travel vaccinations, family planning services, maternal health services, and chronic disease screenings. For younger Hall county residents, they provide dental care, immunizations, and child health services. Residents of all ages benefit from the emergency preparedness program and environmental health services, which include restaurant, swimming pool, and sewage system inspections. The health department also provides access to large, national public health programs, including the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) nutrition program and the Ryan White program.
As a leading Georgia healthcare community, the people of Gainesville-Hall County have access to the finest Physician Services, a top incentive for incoming businesses and those trying to attract top talent.
The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Committee has been the catalyst for connecting Health & Wellness Initiatives to local businesses.
