Northeast Georgia Medical Center Lumpkin Officially Opens

Apr 17, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

The new 66,000-square-foot hospital is located in Dahlonega, Georgia.

Residents in Dahlonega, Dawsonville and surrounding communities have a new hospital for emergency and inpatient care – and can have surgery close to home, too. The new Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Lumpkin hospital has officially opened.

NGHS moved NGMC Lumpkin from the old Chestatee Regional Hospital building on Mountain Drive to its new home along Georgia 400. The 66,000-square-foot building is in Dahlonega. Services include 24/7 emergency care, advanced surgery, inpatient care and on-site imaging, lab and pharmacy support.

Surgeons with Northeast Georgia Physicians Group will provide orthopedic surgery at NGMC Lumpkin starting this week. In the following months, the types of surgery offered will expand to include gynecologic and general surgery as well.

After being delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, NGMC Lumpkin was built on 53 acres, which includes plenty of space for future expansion to grow along with the surrounding population

The NGMC Lumpkin campus backs up to the Chestatee River, and that tie to nature has been incorporated inside the hospital, thanks to the work of three local artists: Lily Payne, an open impressionism landscape artist based in Dahlonega; Deb Nadelhoffer, a landscape artist from Dawsonville; and Anna Elrod, a potter from Dahlonega. Their art was selected to be featured near the hospital’s main entrance, bringing the spirit of the surrounding landscape indoors.
