Where you come for Smart Medicine
Highly regarded as THE premier health provider in the region, St. Joseph's/Candler (SJ/C) combines high-impact technology, breakthrough clinical treatments and time-honored compassionate care to create "smart medicine"-an innovative approach to health and well being.
St. Joseph's Hospital
SJ/C offers healthcare services across the entire continuum, including local and regional primary care, specialized inpatient and outpatient services at our two anchor hospitals, home healthcare services, as well as a wide variety of community outreach and education efforts throughout the region.
Our faith-based, holistic approach to healing encourages individuals to become more knowledgeable about their personal health, while providing the most advanced, comprehensive treatments and state-of-the-art medical technologies available almost anywhere.
While both our anchor hospitals provide an extensive array of healthcare services, our Centers of Excellence provide the finest, tertiary care services in the region. These include:
- The Heart Hospital
- Nancy N. and J. C. Lewis Cancer and Research Pavilion
- Mary Telfair Women's Hospital
- Institute for Advanced Bone and Joint Surgery
- Institute for Neurosciences
Both St. Joseph's Hospital and Candler Hospital are individually accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), while the health system is one of a select few in the country to have achieved network accreditation status. Additionally, St. Joseph's/Candler is the only health provider in the region to have achieved MAGNET status for nursing excellence and is noted as one of the country's Top 100 Integrated Healthcare Systems by Modern Healthcare Magazine.
Our affiliations with Emory University HealthCare and the NCI-designated H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute further provide our patients with access to smarter medicine.
St. Joseph's/Candler is the region's only faith-based, not-for-profit health institution and through our affiliate hospitals and health services, we are the largest and most experienced healthcare provider in the region.
