A History of Healing and Growth

Ribbon cutting ceremony

SRMC first opened its doors to patients April 19, 1971 as a small, community hospital in Riverdale, Ga. Four short years later, the increased demand for services brought Southern Regional to begin a construction project that would double the hospital's size.

In 1987, Southern Regional completed a second major expansion and became the first hospital in Georgia to be smoke free. Since then, SRMC has opened the Women's Life Center in 1991 which, to date, has delivered over 44,105 babies.

Spivey Station located in Jonesboro, Ga. is the newest Southern Regional addition and specialized services include OB/GYN, breast care, primary care and internal medicine, neurology, hematology and oncology.
