Peachtree Christian Health traces its roots back to Peachtree Christian Hospice, a nonprofit in-patient hospice center that operated from 2000 to 2017. Thanks to the vision and generosity of D. Scott Hudgens, Jr., who provided the funding and donated the 8.6-acre property, the hospice staff, and volunteers were able to serve over 12,000 patients and their families as an outreach ministry of Peachtree Christian Church, under the clinical operation of PruittHealth.
Due to financial constraints affecting PruittHealth, the hospice eventually closed in 2017. However, the Hospice Board of Directors was determined to carry on the mission of serving families and their loved ones. They decided to transform the organization's purpose into an adult day health (life enrichment center). After 18 months of expansion and renovation, Peachtree Christian Health opened on July 1, 2019. Today, it proudly serves caregivers in Gwinnett, North Fulton, Forsyth, Hall, and DeKalb counties.
Peachtree Christian Health is grateful for the contributions of many individuals and organizations who made this new era of vital service possible. These include the late D. Scott Hudgens, Jr., former Senior Pastor of Peachtree Christian Church Dr. James Collins, former co-chairmen of the Hospice Board of Directors William Todd and Martha Todd, PruittHealth's Chairman and CEO Neil Pruitt, dedicated board members, staff, volunteers, and benefactors. Together, their support has allowed Peachtree Christian Health to continue providing compassionate and dignified care to the community.
