Stephens County Hospital was established in 1937 and quickly became a leading hospital in Northeast Georgia. In 1967, the hospital was relocated from its Tugalo Street address to its present location on Falls Road situated on 28 acres of land donated to Stephens County by Toccoa Falls College. Since that time, there have been many additions and renovations to our facility to meet the growing healthcare needs of our community. New Impressions, our award winning family centered Maternal Child unit and Kids' Korner, our "playground" Pediatric department, are both decorated and designed to deliver the special treatment their special customers require. Third West, totally new construction on the third floor of the hospital, boasts all private rooms. During Third West's construction, the Emergency department addition was built and a total renovation of the treatment, registration and waiting area was completed. Lastly, we completed the most significant renovation on the original structure of the hospital with total demolition and reconstruction in the Surgical and Medical clinical areas featuring new furnishings, upgraded equipment and the latest in medical technology for a more comfortable hospital stay.
