Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Wellstar Health System has enhanced our visitor policy as part of our commitment to providing a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every hospital is assigned a color reflecting its current visitation policy based on the number of active COVID-19 cases in each local community. The level of COVID-19 infections determines when and how many essential caregivers—patient advocates, family members and loved ones—can visit at this time.
We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to keep your loved one safe and healthy. If you have questions about the visitation policy, please call your local Wellstar hospital.
Positive COVID-19 case levels are ongoing or low. Two essential caregivers (visitors) are permitted in most areas from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
Positive COVID-19 case levels are elevated. No essential caregivers (visitors) are permitted in most areas.
Positive COVID-19 case levels are high. No essential caregivers (visitors) are permitted.
We offer volunteer opportunities in a variety of settings. As a volunteer, you will be joining individuals of all ages and backgrounds, who are dedicated to giving back to our hospital and community, and ensuring we achieve our vision of delivering world-class healthcare.
Volunteers play an important role in many different departments and have varying responsibilities. Volunteer openings are Monday through Friday, between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM and volunteers are asked to commit at least one four-hour shift, each week, for six months or 100 hours, whichever comes first.

Wellstar Paulding received outstanding grade for safety, quality and resource use.
Powered by a strong team of caregivers who are neighbors caring for neighbors
112 private inpatient rooms, we provide advanced medical, surgical and nursing care
The new Wellstar Paulding Hospital is turning five this September. It was our first opportunity to design a hospital from the ground up, and it became one of the first hospitals in the country to use a geothermal energy system, which uses the heat from below the Earth’s surface to heat and cool the facility.
Paulding Hospital features 112 private inpatient rooms, 40 emergency exam and pediatric emergency exam rooms, seven surgical suites, two GI-specific surgical suites, a bronchoscopy suite and decentralized nursing stations.
The hospital recently celebrated an extraordinary accomplishment when it received the coveted Florida Sterling Georgia Oglethorpe Award, which recognizes the hospital’s exceedingly high performance in patient safety, workforce engagement, and financial stewardship.
Over the years, Paulding kept expanding its list of services, bringing much-needed care close to home. One of these offerings is a state-of-the-art catheterization lab, where patients can get treatment for heart attacks and coronary artery disease. The lab opened in 2017, providing care to patients who previously had to travel to either Cobb or Douglas counties for this same life-saving treatment.
“Wellstar’s philosophy has been to deliver high-quality care to the community,” said Harvey Sacks, MD, who served as Paulding County’s sole cardiologist for several decades. “Bringing interventional cardiology here allows people to be treated near home, and makes it easier for their families to be with them at the hospital. Having family with the patient is an important part of healing.”
That same year Wellstar Paulding was also recognized for innovation and excellence in clinical care for patients with COPD and diabetes. The hospital won second place for its focus on diabetes care, which led to better controlling blood sugar for patients with diabetes while in the hospital. Wellstar Paulding Hospital also won third place for lowering readmission rates for patients with COPD.
