About Marcus Trauma Center
Since Grady first opened in 1892, we have continually reinvented ourselves to meet the region’s evolving medical needs.
In the 1890s, that meant providing the same quality of care for rich and poor, black and white. In the 1920s, it meant performing Georgia’s first open-heart surgery. In 2013, it meant creating the first neurological surgical suite within a dedicated stroke center to remove blood clots from the brains of stroke victims. Tomorrow, it will be something we can barely imagine.
You may know Grady as one of the nation’s best trauma centers. We save people who’ve been severely hurt in car accidents, industrial mishaps, and other trauma incidents, 24/7. But there’s another side to us. The side that heals disease, cares for burns, corrects injuries, treats sniffles.
Our physicians, who are on the faculties of Emory and Morehouse medical schools, provide Grady patients with unparalleled care in specialties like cancer, urology, cardiology, neurology, and chronic disease – as well as the more routine, like family medicine and senior care. And we provide this care at Grady Hospital and through six facilities inside and outside of the Perimeter.
Whatever the need, Grady fulfills it – even as we continue to raise the bar for medical care in the region. The world’s leading physicians come to Grady to practice here, teach here, and save patients whose conditions are beyond the capabilities of other hospitals.
But at Grady, we do more than save lives. We give our patients the chance to live them to the fullest.
