Elementary Students Visit GNTC
Around 500 fifth grade students from Dalton Public Schools toured the GNTC Whitfield Murray Campus on Friday, Nov. 15 through a partnership with United Way.

Carl Campbell, the executive director of the Dalton Whitfield Joint Development Authority, talked to a group of City Park students about how he works to bring businesses to town. Campbell spoke on how his job allows him to travel, sometimes internationally, and the result is more jobs brought to Dalton and Whitfield County.

HMC Granted Certificate of Need
Hamilton Medical Center has been granted the Certificate of Need to develop an open heart surgery program by Georgia’s Department of Community Health. 

Hamilton has long been a community partner, not only in providing for the healthcare needs of the community, but also as an employer and as an economic partner. A new open heart surgery program is expected to bring more jobs to the community with the addition of physicians, surgeons and surgical staff to support the program.
