The system includes Oconee Heart and Vascular Center, neurology and industrial medicine practices, the region’s largest home health care/hospice service, the region's only acute inpatient rehabilitation center, the region's only inpatient hospice house, Highland Hills Village retirement community, the Center for Alzheimer's and Dementia Care, and a freestanding outpatient diagnostic, rehab and wellness center. In 2011, St. Mary’s acquired Saint Joseph’s East, a 25-bed critical access hospital, in Greensboro, Ga., renaming it Good Samaritan Hospital. St. Mary’s was founded in 1906 and became a Catholic hospital in 1938 under the sponsorship of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In 1999, sponsorship was transferred to the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, South Central Community, and St. Mary's joined Catholic Health East.
