Gifts and flowers are welcome at Northeast Georgia Medical Center but please be aware:

ICU, oncology, and immunocompromised patients may receive gifts but not flowers or plants. This is due to the fact that flowers and plants can harbor mold and water-borne organisms which could cause additional infection and we want your loved one to have the cleanest and safest environment for healing.


Volunteers assist with a variety of non-medical duties and provide kind and compassionate support to patients, family members, and visitors.
