Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Window Shops are temporarily closed as NGHS facilities have implemented restricted visitation guidelines. Online orders can be delivered to patient rooms at NGMC Gainesville or shipped directly to your address.
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.
