Opened in 1892, Grady Health System grew up with Atlanta. Most Atlantans know Grady for its trauma and emergency services. You’ve seen Grady ambulances on scene and Grady surgeons on television during local disasters. As the region’s premier level I trauma center, we make sure full trauma surgical teams are in the hospital 24/7 – ready when you need us. But maybe you didn’t know our emergency services also include asthma, burn, sickle cell and stroke care. And don’t forget our critical care and intensive care units – including our neonatal intensive care unit. So no matter what the problem is or how small the patient is, we have trained doctors and staff available – ready when you need us. Speaking of doctors, Grady is an internationally recognized teaching hospital staffed exclusively by doctors from Emory University and Morehouse schools of medicine. In fact, 25 percent of all doctors practicing medicine in Georgia received some or all of their training at Grady. We are also accredited by The Joint Commission – that shows patient care and safety matter to us. But that’s not all we do. Grady provides primary care services at our main Primary Care Center located at the hospital and six Primary Care Centers located around Fulton and DeKalb counties. Why? Because we want to you have a primary care physician to help you stay healthy. Why stop there – Grady’s other service centers include a Diabetes Center, Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence and Avon Foundation Breast Health Center. Grady is also a Regional Perinatal Center. And, we provide a dedicated 60 Plus service line for older adults, Teen Health Services and 100 other subspecialty services. Because of our around the clock service and medical expertise, Grady houses Georgia’s Poison Center and 24-hour Rape Crisis and Advice Nurse lines. And, our Ponce de Leon Center was named one of the top three HIV/AIDS outpatient clinics in the country. Grady Health System was created by and named for Henry W. Grady, editor of the “Atlanta Constitution,” who worried about the lack of quality health care for Atlanta’s poor. Since that time, Grady has grown considerably from its original three story, 110-bed facility. It now stands as one of the largest health systems in the United States. Grady Health System today continues to maintain its strong commitment to the health-care needs of Fulton and DeKalb counties underserved, while also offering a full-range of specialized medical services for all segments of the community.
