Increase Provider Resources

To help reduce barriers that are preventing Haralson County residents from receiving the health care they need, Healthy Haralson is working to increases provider resources to clinical and community services.

Higgins General Hospital in Bremen — Haralson County’s only hospital — joined Tanner Health System in 1998. Since then, Tanner has invested substantially in the critical access facility, expanding the hospital’s emergency department and diagnostic imaging unit, improving its inpatient facilities and building a new medical office building to house the many additional specialist services that have come to Bremen through the community’s affiliation with Tanner.

Tanner has continued to invest in health care throughout Haralson County, with three primary care practices serving Bremen, Buchanan and Tallapoosa, as well as pediatrics services, an urgent care providing walk-in care for minor medical emergencies and more.

Most recently, Tanner built a new surgical services unit at Higgins General Hospital, expanding access to vitally needed surgical care, including gastroenterology screenings like colonoscopies, as well as general surgical services, reconstructive and plastic surgery, ear, nose and throat care, eye surgery and more. Tanner has also established a primary stroke center at Higgins General Hospital, making lifesaving stroke care more readily available for Haralson County residents.

Through Get Healthy, Live Well and Healthy Haralson, improved access to medical care in Haralson County will remain a priority. Healthy Haralson is continuing to find innovative ways to improve access to primary care providers, dentists and mental health providers, while promoting existing resources through its community resource guide
