The phone number you have listed for our hospital is incorrect. The number you have listed actually belongs to me in Administration. I get many calls every day from individuals trying to reach the main number, the Hospital Operator. The main number is 770-720-5100. Can you please remove the 770-720-5298 and replace it with 770-720-5100. Thank you so much for your help!!! Please call with any questions.

Thank you,
