First opening its doors in 1960 as a small community hospital, Houston Healthcare has a long tradition of connecting people and the community to excellent health care, annually serving more than 300,000 people.

Area residents do not have to travel far to access high-quality, cost-effective services, from robotic surgery and rapid stroke response to advanced imaging and cardiovascular expertise focused on the patient’s well-being.

The technologically advanced health care system includes two fully accredited acute care medical facilities — Houston Medical Center in Warner Robins and Perry Hospital in Perry. Also, there are three urgent care centers, a family medicine residency program and a staff of more than 2,400 medical and support professionals.

“Our mission is to improve the health care of the community we serve, and we take that mission very seriously,” says Charles Briscoe, Houston Healthcare president and CEO.

Ready for Emergencies

When a medical emergency happens, every tick of the clock is crucial. Houston Healthcare is there and prepared when you need them immediately. Both hospitals have an emergency department, and each year, the skilled emergency team helps over 30,000 individuals seeking emergency medical transport. In addition, seven ambulance stations are located throughout the county, and a fleet of 16 well-maintained ambulances provides around-the-clock emergency medical service.

A recent partnership with Air Evac Lifeteam added a medical helicopter base to Perry Hospital’s Emergency Department to better serve rural areas of the county. The base is staffed 24/7 with a pilot, flight nurse and flight paramedic.

“Our 70-plus paramedics and EMTs are constantly training and reviewing protocols so they can provide the most advanced prehospital care to our community,” Briscoe says.

A wide range of specialty services are offered here, including inpatient and outpatient surgery, advanced cardiovascular care, electronic intensive care units, psychiatric care, orthopedics and joint replacement. In addition, maternity and neonatal intensive care, advanced imaging services, physical and cardiac/pulmonary rehabilitation, oncology treatment, and most recently, the comprehensive stroke treatment program mean lifesaving help is nearby.

Accredited Stroke Center

When a stroke happens, getting timely care is of the essence. Houston Healthcare uses advanced telemedicine services connecting patients to an epicenter of highly trained specialists in the Marcus Stroke Network, affiliated with the Grady Health System in Atlanta. As a result, patients can be quickly evaluated and treated. Additionally, each facility has accredited stroke centers — Houston Medical Center is a Primary Stroke Center, and Perry Hospital is an Acute Stroke Ready Center.

“As a system, Houston Healthcare participates in the Georgia Coverdell Acute Stroke Registry and the American Stroke Association’s ‘Get with the Guidelines’ program,” Briscoe says. “Through this relationship, we can provide high-quality stroke care from rapid evaluation and treatment to inpatient management, rehabilitation and prevention.” 

Heart disease is serious business, and Houston County residents can count on experienced professionals who use the latest technological and diagnostic tools at the Houston Heart Institute. Procedures from heart catheterizations to stress testing are available. Cardiovascular specialists and surgeons are on call 24 hours a day to treat emergencies.

Advanced Surgical Services

Houston Healthcare offers simple and advanced surgical services at Houston Medical Center and Perry Hospital. Utilizing the latest technique and technology, including robotics, the advanced equipment assists the surgeon in performing minimally invasive yet complex surgical procedures.

From the common cold to sprains, Houston Healthcare’s three urgent care clinics — Bonaire Med-Stop, Lake Joy Med-Stop and the Pavilion Med-Stop — can treat non-emergency issues with convenient hours.

#HoustonHealthy

Everyone is encouraged to have fun with a new #HoustonHealthy initiative launched by Houston Healthcare. With a mission to promote community health and wellness awareness, the public can participate by posting a picture of healthy living on social media using #HoustonHealthy.

“We are a busy and growing hospital system, and we are proud to serve Houston County,” Briscoe says. “There is no need to travel out of town for high-quality care.”
