Saint Joseph’s Hospital
Hope & Healing
In 1880, four intrepid Sisters of Mercy traveled from Savannah to Atlanta, tasked with establishing a hospital committed to medical excellence and compassionate care in an era when hospitals were perceived as places to die. From its beginnings in a two-story house with ten beds to current research that turns groundbreaking initiatives into treatments for patients, St. Joseph’s continue to respect its past and invent its future. Its story is told through pictures, stories, and memories of dedicated caregivers and visionary citizens of the city whose history is entwined with that of the facility.
This book tells the story of an incredible 125-year journey. It is the story of courageous physicians, nurses, and employees . . . who dared to create a vision of excellence and commitment to service.
