The Ty Cobb Healthcare System began as only a single hospital. Cobb Memorial Hospital was dedicated in Royston, Georgia, on January 22, 1950, to the glory of God and in loving memory of Ty Cobb's parents, William Herschel Cobb and Amanda Cobb. Ty Cobb donated $100,000 toward the construction of the modern 24-bed hospital designed to meet the health care needs of the people of his hometown and surrounding rural northeast Georgia. The Royston Record described the new facility as "one of the most modern and best equipped hospitals that has been built under the Hill Burton (Federal Act) in the state of Georgia," containing "the latest equipment... that could be bought."

Famous quotes containing the word system:
“The individual protests against the world, but he doesnt get beyond protest, he is just a single protester. When he wants to be more than that, he has to counter power with power, he has to oppose the system with another system.”
—Friedrich Dürrenmatt (19211990)
