INNOVATION AND CLINICAL EXCELLENCE
Nathan Littauer is a place where health care innovations happen. It is a place where care and concern are met with clinical excellence. Our patients call it their medical home.

STATE-OF-THE-ART BIRTHING CENTER

We have added the Renaissance Robotic Spine System to our line-up of advanced, minimally invasive surgical programs with Dr. Jian Shen. For our patients, this means less pain and fewer scars, with a faster recovery and return to daily activities.

Wow! Littauer has added the latest MRI technology to their main campus.
A new suite was constructed to house the Optima MR450w with GEM, the latest in an advanced system from GE Healthcare. The system is designed to help maximize patient comfort while delivering uncompromised image quality.

Overview

The Environmental Health Services Department works to ensure that the air we breathe, the water we drink and use and the food we consume are free of contamination and harm.
   
Environmental Health Services coordinates and oversees the programs and regulations that prevent illness, disability and death from human interaction with the environment. We investigate and respond to health emergencies including those that may be of a chemical or biological nature and pose a risk to the citizens of Fulton County.

The staff of our Environmental Health Services especially works to safeguard the health of populations that may be vulnerable to environmental hazards—children, the elderly and those with disabilities. We serve the public from three district offices.
