To meet metro Atlanta’s rapidly growing healthcare needs, Grady will open two new outpatient centers, expanding access to primary and specialty care for residents in central and south Fulton County. The recently approved GA-AIDE directed payment program provided Grady with the necessary financial support from federal and state partners to open these two new sites.
“We have listened to our community and paid close attention to the areas that need more health services,” said John Haupert, president and CEO at Grady. “We conducted research and identified these neighborhoods that have seen significant population growth but have historically lacked access to primary and specialty care.”
The centers will be fully staffed to provide comprehensive primary care and specialty services, including cardiology, HIV services, mammography, rehabilitation, x-ray, lab, and pharmacy. The addition of these health centers will make it easy and convenient for patients to receive the care they need closer to home.
