DeKalb Medical is just minutes from downtown Atlanta, truly one of the world's greatest cities. Atlanta's proximity to the mountains and the beach makes it a great place to live, work and play.
With its rich blend of arts, culture, sports, recreation, shopping, fine dining and southern hospitality, Atlanta offers something for everyone. From the business and cultural venues in the heart of the city to the world class recreational facilities on the outskirts, Atlanta provides all the amenities needed for an unequaled work/life balance. Whether you're looking for family-oriented fun or exciting night life, Atlanta has it all.
DeKalb Medical's facilities are all east of the city of Atlanta, yet our employees live throughout the metro Atlanta area where the cost of living is lower than most large metropolitan areas.
We enjoy incredible weather, with four distinct seasons – the summer and winter months are relatively short, giving way to long, gentle springs and autumns. And, the annual rainfall is only about 48 inches.
Metro Atlanta has 26 public school systems and more than 150 private schools. Also, it is home to a number of state and private colleges and universities and the largest concentration of historically black colleges and universities in the United States.
