Union General Hospital opened as a small outpatient clinic in 1959, but since has evolved into one of the most modern and progressive hospitals in the state of Georgia. Union General Hospital is a newly renovated, 45-bed, nonprofit healthcare facility located in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia. Recognized for their outstanding efforts, Union General received their Chest Pain Center Accreditation from the American College of Cardiology. The Women's Choice Award has recognized Union General Hospital as one of "America's 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience" four years in a row. Union General has also been recognized as one of the "most wired" hospitals in the country for several years. This achievement is from their well-thought-of advances in Information Technology. Union General was named a 100 SafeCare Hospital and recognized for being in the top 1% of hospitals in the nation for low infection, low complications, low readmissions, and high patient satisfaction and value by the SafeCare Group.
