Since 1997 the Medical Center Foundation has organized a series of three-year community wide campaigns to raise funds for health-specific initiatives based on areas of great community need.
The Healthy Journey campaigns have raised millions and funded critical projects including the Ronnie Green Heart Center, W.D. Stribling Heart Clinic, Walters Auditorium, Dawn McKibbon Memorial Chapel, and the Resource Center among many others. Healthy Journey funds allowed the hospital to add digital mammography services and to renovate the pediatric rooms to create a more home-like environment for families.
Healthy Journey initiatives also target the most underserved in our community. Through support of PeachCare for kids and the Health Access Initiative, Foundation funds have made healthcare available to the uninsured and working poor.
Hospital employees and volunteers, physicians and people from every walk of life support Healthy Journey. In doing so, they become part of the mission of Northeast Georgia Health System as we work to save lives, prevent disease, and travel "on the road to a healthier community."
