A Tradition of Service
For more than 98 years, Granville Health System has been delivering quality health care, close to home.
In early 1920, a consensus developed among community leaders in Granville County, North Carolina, that a general hospital was needed to serve the community Three local physicians, Dr. Sam Watkins, Dr. Nelson Thomas, and Dr. Jack Bullock established the small hospital in the town of Oxford.
Today, GHS has expanded its services throughout Granville County, meeting the needs of the community and offering convenient access to medical care where you work and live.
Granville Health System has recently received a number of national awards, including the Hospital of Choice Award, which names GHS as one of the top 100 hospitals in the country.
In 2010, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina designated the health system’s Granville Medical Center as a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement. This recognition sets Granville Health System as a top provider for these orthopaedic services in the Triangle area, including Oxford, Henderson, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary and the surrounding areas. GHS was given this designation because it has demonstrated a commitment to quality care, resulting in excellent overall outcomes for patients who undergo knee and hip replacement procedures at Granville Medical Center.
Granville Health System also received the Community Value Index five-star hospital award, placing GHS in the top 20% of hospitals in the country in offering financial value to the communities they serve, while reinvesting back into their facilities in order to provide for current and emerging health needs.
