Gwinnett Medical Center

Site Mission:

We exist to provide quality health services to our community.

Chaplaincy Values:

We believe that all persons are of worth and that being human has many expressions. Each expression deserves attention. And all health changes, big or small, impact the whole fabric of life.

About the Site:

All students who select this clinical setting should bring the results of their tuberculosis test to the August site orientation. Students will not be allowed to begin site work until they have received a T.B. skin test, and the test result has been given to the site supervisor. In addition, students are encouraged to get a flu shot from their personal physician or public health center.

With roots that go back over 60 years, Gwinnett Medical Center now includes two hospitals plus additional supporting medical facilities, with more than 4,100 employees and 800 affiliated physicians. Gwinnett Medical Center is a not-for-profit healthcare network providing a wide array of high-quality services and facilities to Gwinnett and the surrounding area.

Our Goal:

We want to be the leading hospital system in the region—not only because we provide vital and compassionate services, but because we also invest in early intervention and preventive care. We want to transform healthcare in Gwinnett County and beyond by providing the highest quality care available.

This fall GMC Con Ed I students will meet each Wednesday from 1:00–2:30 p.m. at Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville for the Reflection Group meeting. The clinical ministry site work will take place Wednesdays, between 9:00-5:00 p.m. In spring the Integrated Seminars will take place on Tusesday afternoon from 2:30–4:30 p.m. at Candler School of Theology. Students are supported by other chaplain staff and CPE chaplain residents as the students visit with families and patients.
