Overview of Grady Memorial Hospital: A Premier Public Academic Hospital in Atlanta, GA Grady Memorial Hospital, located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, has continually reinvented itself, since first opening in 1892, to meet the regions evolving medical needs. In the 1890s, that meant providing the same quality of care for rich and poor, black and white. In the 1920s, it meant performing Georgias first open-heart surgery. In 2013, it meant creating the first neurological surgical suite within a dedicated stroke center to remove blood clots from the brains of stroke victims. Tomorrow, it will be something we can barely imagine. Gradys physicians, who are on the faculties of Emory and Morehouse medical schools, provide patients with unparalleled care in specialties like cancer, urology, cardiology, neurology and chronic disease as well as the more routine, like family medicine and senior care. The worlds leading physicians come to Grady to practice, to teach and to save patients whose conditions are beyond the capabilities of other hospitals. To continue setting the pace for medical care in the region, Grady has invested more than $350 million in the last six years to open new facilities, upgrade technology and launch state-of-the-art services.
