Reverence for every person
Commitment to those in need
This hospital is Atlanta's longest-serving hospital, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1880. Four sisters, with just 50 cents between them, opened the Atlanta Hospital - the city's first after the Civil War.
What started in a small house on Baker Street is now a 32-acre campus in North Atlanta. It was renamed Saint Joseph's Hospital in the 1970s. Our mission is the same today as it was over 130 years ago - to provide compassionate care, especially to those in need.
