In the dynamic county of Gwinnett, Piedmont Eastside Medical Center stands as a vital thread, interwoven with the lives and well-being of the community for over 40 years. It’s a place where health and humanity converge, creating a narrative that’s as much about cutting-edge medical care as it is about the people it serves.

This 310-bed, multi-campus system is compassion in action, boasting an array of comprehensive medical and surgical programs. From the rhythm of its cardiovascular suite to the precision of its robotic surgery, Piedmont Eastside stands ready to serve the community with innovation and dedication.

At the heart of Piedmont Eastside’s story is a vast ensemble of 500 board-certified physicians, 1,400 committed employees, and 400 volunteers, all united in their mission to provide a caliber of healthcare that’s nothing short of excellent.

“We view our work here not just as a job, but as a calling,” reflects a seasoned physician, mirroring the organization’s philosophy. “Every patient is a story, a life entrusted to us, a responsibility we embrace with both pride and humility.”

The center’s accolades, such as the full Chest Pain Center Accreditation and the prestigious Blue Distinction for Spine Surgery, aren’t merely badges of honor—they’re benchmarks of a relentless pursuit to elevate patient care. With a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence and a Gold Plus status for stroke care, the message is clear: quality and patient safety are not just goals, but foundations of Piedmont Eastside. 

“Every day, there’s a chance to make a difference in every life we touch,” says one nurse. “that’s the Piedmont way.”

In 2021, a new chapter began as Piedmont Eastside (formerly Eastside Medical Center) joined the Piedmont Healthcare family, broadening its scope of quality health services. This transition marked a renaissance of care, ensuring that the health needs of Gwinnett’s diverse populace were met with even greater resources and a reinforced commitment to healthcare excellence.

In March 2023, Piedmont named Larry Ebert as the Chief Executive Officer of Piedmont Eastside Medical Center. An experienced healthcare executive, Ebert comes to Piedmont Eastside most recently from Piedmont Walton Hospital in Monroe, where he served for five years as CEO.

Piedmont Eastside sits in the heart of Gwinnett, with innovative technology, and employees who have made a promise to care for patients as they would treat their family members, and to deliver high-quality care, close to home. For those seeking both healing and human connection, the Guide to Gwinnett, published by The Gwinnett Magazine, offers an in-depth look into this remarkable center—a guide not just to a place, but to a community’s collective heart and health.”
