Chattahoochee Technical College has provided Piedmont Mountainside Hospital in Jasper with ten Hill-Rom hospital beds from the college’s Appalachian Campus to help as needed during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’m pleased that Chattahoochee Tech could partner with Piedmont Mountainside Hospital to provide assistance to our community in a major time of need,” said Simmons. “This is one of the many partnerships in our community which illustrates the college’s passion of helping others.”
