Decades before Gwinnett Medical Center’s Duluth campus opened, there was Joan Glancy Memorial Hospital.

Established in 1944, the hospital was the first major hospital to serve the Duluth area — or Gwinnett County for that matter. Although it was eventually merged into the Gwinnett Medical system, it continues to serve the area — albeit now referred to as Gwinnett Medical’s Glancy Campus.
