Chattooga To Get Emergency Facility

Chattooga County will get it’s own emergency room, according to plans announced by Atrium Health of Rome.
Working with the Chattooga County Commissioner and state elected officials, Atrium Health Floyd identified the need to provide around-the-clock emergency care to the rural county and has submitted a Letter of Intent to apply for a Certificate of Need to build and operate the new freestanding emergency department in Chattooga.
If approved, Atrium Health will build and operate the new emergency department… which should dramatically improve outcomes and save lives by making emergency care available in the community 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The new freestanding emergency department will be located next to Walmart on U.S. Highway 27 at Pennville.
