Brooks County Hospital
The historic Brooks County Hospital began in 1935 when a group of Brooks County physicians and other concerned citizens decided to build a hospital in Quitman. The 35-bed hospital first opened its doors in September 1935, with 15 beds.
While scores of small community hospitals across the United States have had to shut down in the face of tumultuous economic times, Quitman’s facility breathed new life in 1987 when the Hospital Authority of Brooks County Hospital leased the facility to John D. Archbold Memorial Hospital. The hospital's affiliation with Archbold Hospital has proven to be an invaluable resource for the enhancement of the available healthcare for Brooks County citizens.
Quitman is a beautiful city, known as the Camelia City, due to the abundance of color when camelias, azaleas, and other flowers bloom. The city of Quitman is ideally located just 4 hours from Atlanta, 4 hours to Orlando and 1 1/2 hours to Gulf Coast beaches.
