Grady Memorial Hospital withstands test of time

Grady Hospital

Hospitals and their brave employees deserve more thanks and respect than ever. One Atlanta institution that’s been a stronghold during the pandemic (and for over a century before) is Grady Memorial, located in the heart of downtown.

Founded in 1890 with only 14 rooms, it’s now the fifth largest hospital in the U.S. and one of the busiest trauma centers in the country. The hospital has seen its share of history, from being known as a segregated hospital during the civil rights movement, to treating “Gone With The Wind” author Margaret Mitchell when she was hit by a car.
