The Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority (“the Authority”) exists to promote the health of the greater Atlanta community. Governed by a ten member Board of Trustees appointed by the commissioners of Fulton and DeKalb counties, the Authority is committed to working to meet the healthcare needs of the residents of Fulton and DeKalb counties. This is carried out through oversight of the Grady Memorial Hospital Corporation, a 17 member non-profit Board of Directors charged with administering the Grady Health System, sponsoring community health events, and advocating for solid healthcare policy in the State of Georgia.
“I believe Grady is one of the greatest healthcare resources in the state of Georgia. To ensure that it survives for many years to come, we must continue working together, alongside Grady's dedicated administration and staff, to make even greater improvements. We need Grady, and Grady needs all of us.”
Thomas W. Dortch, Jr.
