Residents of Gainesville, Georgia have peace of mind when it comes to medical care.

Residents of this Georgia lake community should be very excited because this is the first new hospital to be built in Georgia in twenty years. Because the occasion is so rare, they held a Blessing of the Ground Ceremony before they broke ground.
