Atlanta Medical Center began its service to the Atlanta community on Thanksgiving Day in 1901 as Georgia Baptist Medical Center. Located in a downtown five-room cottage, the infirmary had two patients, one doctor, and a few churchwomen serving as nurses. Nearly a century has gone by and today the medical center has grown into a 460-bed tertiary facility that is sprawled across two city blocks.
Our services include a 30-bed neonatal intensive care unit, the Atlanta Cancer Center, the Atlanta Rehabilitation Center, three medical office buildings, the Wellness Center which provides a multidisciplinary approach to health and wellness, the Graduate Medical Education Program, and areas of medical excellence that provide care in advanced surgery, cardiology, oncology, neurology, women's health, orthopaedics, and trauma.
As time has passed, many advancements in medical care have occurred. However, one thing has remained the same - caring and compassion for each patient and family. This has been the strength of our long life here in Atlanta.
Our web site has important information about the services we offer. If you have any questions about any of them, please call the appropriate extension if listed or the main hospital number for assistance.
Thank you for choosing Atlanta Medical Center. We look forward to providing extraordinary service to you and your family.
