Exceptional Facilities - Healthcare


Access to superior healthcare services is a priority in DeKalb County. Residents are fortunate to be served by numerous services and community programs that support the health and well-being of the area.

DeKalb Memorial Hospital, an award-winning, not-for-profit, acute care medical center, is a leader in the area’s healthcare community. DeKalb Memorial offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services in its modern facilities. The hospital unveiled a 40,000-square-foot Surgical Center in May of 2008 and is now in the midst of another major project – the addition of a new emergency department, imaging and laboratory departments and a critical care unit. The $8.7 million project will span 44,000 square feet and is slated for completion by the end of 2011. For more detailed information, visit

This not-for-profit community hospital is on the grow too, recently announcing a $42 million expansion project, which will include 110,470 square feet of new space and 15,930 square feet of renovated space. The campus’s new structures will be finished in the fall of 2012, while renovation of the existing space will be completed by fall of 2013. Learn more at
