|Letter from Ty Cobb Healthcare System CEO, Chuck Adams: |
Welcome to Ty Cobb Healthcare System's website. We're glad you chose our site. It is an honor to have you with us. Let me take this time to introduce who we are.
We are known throughout Northeast Georgia as the premier healthcare provider for the communities of Franklin, Hart, Madison, and Barrow counties and the surrounding areas. Our mission is to continuously improve the quality of primary, long-term and home care within our resource capabilities and to promote healthier lifestyles through education consistent with individual and community needs.
Ty Cobb Healthcare System's vision is to be the model of integrated health care that meets needs across the continuum of care from birth to dignified death. In short, we provide healthcare for our communities from childbirth, to outpatient care, to in-patient care, to long-term care.
Chuck Adams, CEO Our healthcare system began in Royston, Georgia in 1950 with baseball's immortal Ty Cobb donating $100,000 toward the construction of a modern twenty-four-bed hospital. The hospital was designed to meet the health care needs of the people of Ty Cobb's hometown and surrounding northeast Georgia. Since then, Ty Cobb Healthcare System has grown into Cobb Memorial Hospital with 71 beds, Hart County Hospital with 73 beds, Barrow Community Hospital with 56 beds, Brown Memorial Convalescent Center with 144 beds, Cobb Health Care Center with 117 beds, Hartwell Health Care Center with 92 beds, and the Gables with 48 beds.
