Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital is Atlanta's longest-serving hospital, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1880. Four sisters, with just 50 cents between them, opened the Atlanta Hospital — the city’s first after the Civil War.  What started in a small house on Baker Street is now a 32-acre campus in north Atlanta. It was renamed Saint Joseph’s Hospital in the 1970s. In 2012 Saint Joseph’s Hospital entered into a Joint Operating Company (JOC) with Emory Healthcare.  This JOC is a partnership between Emory Healthcare and Trinity Healthcare.  Our mission is the same today as it has been for almost 140 years — to provide compassionate clinically excellent healthcare care, especially to those most in need.
