SNELLVILLE — Eastside Medical Center has renamed its Eastside Heritage Center.

According to the hospital, the renaming is an effort to unite the comprehensive health care services offered at the Snellville facility. Eastside Heritage Center will now be known as Eastside Medical Center — South Campus.

“Renaming this hospital unites us in our mission and reflects the size and scope of our health system, as well as the collaboration that has existed among the hospitals for years,” said Tim Merritt, COO of Eastside Medical Center — South Campus. “Renaming the hospital also provides additional clarity around the separate and distinct roles of the South Campus and our main hospital.”

In addition to the renaming of the facility, Eastside Medical Center — South Campus recently completed an eight-month renovation project that Merritt said has dramatically enhanced the environment for the comfort of patients.

The South Campus has 61 adult and geriatric behavioral health beds, a 20-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit and a wound care clinic. The facility is located at 2160 Fountain Drive in Snellville.
