Emory-Adventist Hospital

Emory-Adventist Hospital at Smyrna, formerly known as Smyrna Hospital, is just minutes from downtown Atlanta. Located in Cobb County, one of Georgia's fastest growing areas, Emory-Adventist Hospital at Smyrna is dedicated to meeting the health care needs and concerns of its community. The not-for-profit facility has 88-beds dedicated to general/acute care. Established in 1974, Emory-Adventist Hospital at Smyrna became part of Adventist Health System in 1976.



Through a 1995 joint venture with Emory Healthcare (Emory), Emory-Adventist became the first hospital in Atlanta to be co-owned by two leading health care providers - Adventist Health System and Emory. Along with the benefits of association with Emory University and the recognized excellence of the south's leading tertiary care hospital, the joint venture makes it possible for the shared mission of the hospital to succeed. Adventist Health System manages the daily operation of the hopsital, while Emory manages the joint venture's primary care satellite facility, The Emory Clinic at Smyrna. Emory-Adventist Hospital provides Emory with a substantial presence in Cobb County.



As expected, Emory-Adventist Hospital provides services commonly found in hospitals of its size; however, it has many diagnostic services and specialties usually found only in larger hospitals. Emory Adventist Hospital's medical staff of more than 240 physicians includes a wide range of specialists. On-campus specialties include internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, cardiology, urology, physical medicine, OB-GYN and podiatry. The Specialty Center at Emory-Adventist Hospital houses additional specialties including ophthalmology, gastroenterology, urology, endocrinology, colorectal surgery, pain management, general surgery, and more.



With a 37,000-square-foot Emory Clinic building and a 24,000-square-foot Medical Arts Center both connected to the hospital by covered walkways, the hospital's services are easily accessible to the physicians' offices. The excellent care provided by physicians in the community combined with the specialty and subspecialty care of Emory physicians provides the area with the high-quality, patient-focused care it serves. In addition to the area's only 24-hour-a-day, seven days a week emergency center, Emory Adventist Hospital's services include: Social services; Inpatient/Outpatient Surgical Center; ICU/CCU; Lithotripsy; Clinical Laboratory; Sleep Lab; Physical/Occupational/Speech Therapy; Endoscopic Gastrointestinal Lab; Mammography; Cardiopulmonary Services; and full-service radiology including newly purchased MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, echo/ultrasound, and fluoroscopy. In addition, Emory-Adventist Hospital operates a pain relief program, and prostate health program.



In the tradition of Seventh-day Adventist Healthcare, Emory-Adventist Hospital practices the philosophy that total wellness is achieved through a balance of physical, mental, social and spiritual health. Special emphasis is placed on providing superior health care with personalized attention and compassion.



Emory-Adventist Hospital sponsors a strong community education program, offering free or discounted health screenings as well as a variety of seminars conducted by medical professionals.  In addition, Emory-Adventist Hospital participates in the Cobb Chamber of Commerce "Partner in Education" program through the adoption of a local middle school.  The hospital provides assistance and support to the school in a variety of ways, including the implementation of school supply drives, financial support for special initiatives, and the coordination of teacher appreciation events. 



In addition to Cobb County’s two public school systems, numerous private schools serve the area. Smyrna residents also have an impressive selection of higher learning institutions. Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University are in Cobb County. Additionally, Emory University, Georgia State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology are all located within a 30-minute drive from Smyrna.



With Atlanta only minutes away, Smyrna residents have easy access to the cultural life and professional sporting events, as well as the Cobb Symphony Orchestra, the Georgia Ballet, the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art and The Theater in the Square, a regional theatre company. The area also has one of the largest park systems in the southeast, with three parks in Smyrna and many others throughout Cobb County. The famed Silver Comet Trail features several trailheads in Smyrna. The moderate climate makes the area a favorite with outdoor enthusiasts. The Smyrna and Cobb County library system and recreation departmnet offers a variety of programs from ballet and judo to family storytime and study hall. Smyrna is an excellent choice for those who want the convenience and diversity of a big city without losing the sense of community and easy access of a suburban setting.
