Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center
Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center is a 360-bed non-profit hospital and regional referral center serving 17 counties in Athens and northeast Georgia. We offer a Level 2 Trauma Center and Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, urgent care centers, and an extensive network of respected physicians, surgeons and specialists.
On February 20, 1919, Drs. Goss, Holliday, Hunnicutt and Reynolds met to discuss the need for a community hospital in Athens-Clarke County. After securing the necessary funding in 1921, a 100-bed facility was opened, featuring three medical floors, two operating rooms, a delivery room and a 24-member medical staff. Over the past 100 years, Piedmont Athens Regional has grown to serve 17 counties in northeast Georgia and provides jobs for more than 3,300 employees. What started as a small local hospital has changed, but our original mission to serve our community and make a positive difference has stayed the same.
Piedmont Healthcare is a federally certified 501(c)3 nonprofit community hospital system. As a nonprofit, gifts are a vital part of supporting our mission, and directly benefit the health and wellness of patients in our community. Along with Athens, Piedmont has foundations in Atlanta and Columbus.
