As we continue to fight COVID-19, we are making every effort to prepare for a potential influx of patients that could lead to a staffing shortage. In reponse, we are actively recruiting community volunteers to serve in clinical and nonclinical roles at the Northeast Georgia Medical Center Campuses in Gainesville, Braselton, Barrow and Lumpkin.
