Healthcare


Meriwether means good medicine.


A heritage of healing that supports true care and convenience.


In Meriwether County, our healthcare began with our H20, and it began a very long time ago. First, sought out by indigenous peoples and then Native Americans for our warm spring waters, Meriwether County boasts a legacy of care and healing that goes back thousands of years.

Of course, today Meriwether’s leading-edge care is a world away in high-tech services and capabilities, but the emphasis on healing and wellness remains personal and individual in top-flight local facilities providing world-class expertise across a comprehensive spectrum of care: 

Warm Springs Medical Center: Founded in 1957 as a 38-bed facility under the name Meriwether Memorial, today the 104-bed Warm Springs Medical Center offers the latest diagnostic services, from MRI and multi-slice spiral CT to mammography and ultrasound. Physician specializations cover a wide range of needs as well, from internal medicine to gastroenterology, from advanced general surgery to orthopedics, from podiatry to pathology. The Medical Center is also an active community partner, supporting wellness and community wellbeing through a variety of efforts.

Georgia Rehabilitation and Imaging:  In 2007, the hospital opened Georgia Rehabilitation and Imaging of Warm Springs Medical Center to provide a deep bench of industrial medicine and occupational therapy services, as well as sports medicine and physical, aquatic and speech therapy. At Georgia Rehab, a coordinated, comprehensive approach to care is implemented in a state-of-the-art setting where important clinical studies are also being carried out. For industry Georgia Rehab is a key resource, offering Worksteps Industrial Therapy, including Onsite and Ergonomic Safety Training, Ergonomic Job Analysis, Post-Offer Screening (to detect pre-existing conditions or inability to perform job function), Functional Capacity Evaluation and Work Conditioning.

Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital: Founded in 1926 by Franklin Roosevelt as America’s first modern treatment center for poliomyelitis, the Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital has continued to serve as one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation facilities. Today Roosevelt Warm Springs provides 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care and intensive rehabilitation, specializing in medically complex conditions due to catastrophic or chronic illness or injury. In 2014 Roosevelt Warm Springs became a network member of GRHealth, the not-for-profit corporation managing the clinical operations of Georgia Regents University and a national leader in care and research.

Metro medical options: Meriwether residents reap the benefits of expert personalized local care while also enjoying an impressive range of healthcare options that can be accessed in less than an hour’s drive in the Atlanta metro area. Atlanta’s more than 60 hospitals include Emory University, St. Joseph’s and Piedmont Hospitals, as well as others accorded top slots in the U.S. News and World Report Health Rankings.

So, is it “something in the water”? True, it began with the H2O, but when it comes to today’s great care—to expertise, specialization, convenience and commitment—Meriwether’s healthcare means so much more.
