Founder of Northeast Georgia Diagnostic Clinic dies

By Ken Stanford Reporter

Dr. Henry S. Jennings, a retired longtime Gainesville physician and founder of the Northeast Georgia Diagnostic Clinic, has died at the age of 94.

Dr. Jennings founded the clinic in 1953, according to the group's website, while he was in practice at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.  It has grown from a four-doctor practice to one that today consists of 36 doctors an eleven mid-level providers.

Two years ago, the Gainesville-Hall County Community Council on Aging honored him with its first Quality of Life Award.

According to a press release from the Council on Agning at the time, Dr. Jennings was chosen because of his commitment to improving the quality of life for residents throughout Gainesville and Hall County.

"Dr. Jennings has had a long distinguished career serving others as a physician specializing in internal medicine, and as a volunteer with several organizations such as the Georgia Heart Association," the release continued.

Jennings was the first board-certified internist at Hall County Hospital (now Northeast Georgia Medical Center.) .

While Little & Davenport Funeral Home has not yet released specific information on funeral services, a statement issued by Gainesville First United Methodist Church Friday said a memorial service is planned at the church Wednesday, March 8 at 2 p.m.
