The TOUR Championship today announced Northside Hospital as the Official Hospital of the 2018 event at East Lake Golf Club, which is set to return to Atlanta Sept. 19-23 with the top 30 in the FedExCup standings set to vie for the TOUR Championship and FedExCup titles.
With 150 locations across the state, including three not-for-profit locations in Atlanta, Forsyth and Cherokee, Northside Hospital is one of Georgia’s leading healthcare providers with more than 2,800 physicians and 15,000 employees.
On site at the TOUR Championship, Northside Hospital will staff all on-course medical tents with doctors and first aid staff throughout tournament week. In addition, Northside Hospital will also be sponsoring the tournament’s ADA Shuttles and ADA bleachers on the golf course.
“The health and safety of our fans while attending the TOUR Championship is our highest priority, so it’s comforting to have to have several doctors and first aid staff from Northside Hospital on site during the week,” TOUR Championship Executive Director Allison Fillmore said. “We’re proud to be associated with a health care provider that has such a strong commitment to the health and wellness in this community and throughout the state.”
All Northside hospitals are full-service, acute-care facilities that offer particular expertise in Maternity Services, Women’s Health, Cancer Care, Surgery and Radiology.
