      GA Region D


    We are the Region D Healthcare Coalition (RDHC), a network of healthcare organizations, providers and regional partners committed to strengthening our healthcare system to ensure that it will be best prepared to respond during those crucial times of need.

    Established in 2012 and funded by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), the RDHC serves more than three and a half million citizens residing within eight metro-Atlanta counties: Clayton, DeKalb, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Newton, and Rockdale.

    Grady Health System is one of the largest safety net health systems in the United States. Grady consists of the 953-bed Grady Memorial Hospital, six neighborhood health centers, Crestview Health & Rehabilitation Center, and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding, which is operated as a Children's affiliate. With its nationally acclaimed emergency medical services, Grady is the only Level I trauma center in the Metro Atlanta region and serves as the 911 ambulance provider for the city of Atlanta. Grady's Walter L. Ingram Burn Center is the leading burn center in north Georgia. And the Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center is a Joint Commission designated Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center. Other key services/distinctions include Grady's Regional Perinatal Center with its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Georgia's first Cancer Center for Excellence, The Avon Comprehensive Breast Center, the Georgia Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, and the Ponce de Leon Center - one of the top HIV/AIDS outpatient clinics in the country. Grady is one of an elite group of hospitals to earn the Baby-Friendly USA international recognition as a Baby-Friendly Designated birth facility.
