Notes Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1880, Atlanta Hospital was the city's first permanent hospital, located in a two-story brick house at the corner of Baker and Collins (now Courtland) Streets. The hospital was subsequently renamed St. Joseph's Infirmary and in 1885, its original building was replaced by a three-story building facing Collins Street between Baker and Harris Streets. In 1978, the renamed St. Joseph's Hospital dedicated its new facility near Peachtree Dunwoody Road and I-285.
