It's easy to take it for granted:
the knowledge that if you need quality
healthcare, you'll get it.
For too many communities around
the country, there is no local hospital, or the
hospital in the community suffers from a weak

That's not the case for northeast Georgia.
For the seventh year
in a row (2006-2012), Northeast Georgia Medical
Center (NGMC) has ranked #1 in Georgia

cardiac care, according to the 12th annual
HealthGrades Hospital Quality in America Study.
Specifically, for 2012, NGMC is:
• #1 in GA for Overall Cardiac Services
• #1 in GA for Cardiac Surgery
• #1 in GA for Cardiology Services
• #1 in GA for Coronary Interventional
In addition, NGHS cancer services
have received national recognition, and many
other services have earned individual national
certification and honors for their commitment to
excellence and superior patient outcomes.
Quality healthcare saves lives.
