About Wellstar Health System
Who is Wellstar?
Wellstar has a deep-rooted community character: One that’s led generations of clinicians to serve, generations of patients to seek care and generations of team members to seek employment within our health system.
Today, we’re one of the largest and most integrated healthcare systems in Georgia with more than 24,000 team members—including 6,000 nurses and more than 3,000 physicians and advanced practitioners—providing compassionate, high-quality care. We’re also the only health system with a network of Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 trauma centers in metro Atlanta. These centers help us serve the most critical patients with a range of emergency care options.
Together, we’re proud to have served one out of every six Georgians, including patients from 148 out of 159 Georgia counties. And our journey continues as we work to reach patients and families in new communities in new ways—ever in the pursuit of the best in innovative, world-class healthcare close to home.
