George E. Weems Memorial Hospital
George E. Weems Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed critical access hospital that provides vital health care services to the Franklin County community and its visitors. Our mission is to improve the health status of the residents and visitors to Franklin County, by providing quality, compassionate, cost effective and convenient health care through community leadership and in collaboration with other healthcare organizations which serve our communities.
The George E. Weems Memorial Hospital features dedicated emergency services 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. All hospital services, including radiology, laboratory and respiratory, are available to the ER to allow for direct access to critical diagnostic reports in an emergency situation. The physicians who attend the ER also serve as hospitalists for in-patient hospital care. When a patient needs a little more attention for acute, medical conditions, this physician consistency provides a smooth transition from the ER to the inpatient setting.
Weems Medical Center East in Carrabelle and Weems Medical Center West in Apalachicola provide primary care and rotating specialty care services. For added convenience, walk-in appointments are available.

The swing bed program can also be used to help rehabilitate from surgery, illness or accident in a familiar setting, close to home.
